Survey results to inform the development of Whistler’s Active Transportation Plan
Whistler is seeking the community’s input to inform Let’s Move Whistler: An Active Transportation Plan.
The survey aims to understand the barriers to using active transportation and seeks input on priority improvements to Whistler’s active transportation routes and facilities for the short, medium and long-term.
Community input will shape the Plan’s vision, recommendations and implementation action plan. The Plan’s findings will be incorporated into municipal planning documents, including the Whistler Transportation Plan, Transit Future Action Plan and the Accessibility Action Plan.
Survey respondents will have an opportunity to enter to win a 6-month bus pass valued at $270. The survey closes at noon on October 26. For contest details and survey link visit whistler.ca/LetsMoveWhistler.
“I strongly encourage everyone to take part in this planning process. Efficient, practical and sustainable transportation options are extremely important to Whistlerites,” said Mayor Jack Crompton. “Now is the time to share your ideas, challenges and perspectives to help us create an inclusive Plan that is reflective of our needs while ensuring we are on track to meet our climate goals.”
In April 2021, the Resort Municipality of Whistler was awarded $20,000 from the Province of B.C.’s Active Transportation Planning Program for ‘Let’s Move Whistler’, an active transportation planning framework. The Transportation Advisory Group (TAG) has created an Active Transportation sub-committee comprised of TAG members and citizens at large to inform and contribute to the process.
