Why monitor this
Commuting to work constitutes a large proportion of transportation trips made by Whistler residents. Transportation in single occupancy vehicles (SOV) is more resource intensive and polluting on a per person basis than other modes and commonly coincides with peak traffic volumes on Highway 99. Alternate transportation modes such as carpooling, transit, biking or walking can conveniently replace SOV transportation, especially for those regular trips.
