Moving Whistler

Whistler’s transportation system is integral to the livability and success of Whistler as a resort community. To make it easier for everyone – residents, employees and visitors – to get around Whistler, changes were needed to continually improve Whistler’s transportation system.

Getting Around

Whistler has many options to help residents and visitors get to where they are going safely and efficiently – including transit, active transportation (walking and cycling) and parking. Learn more about getting around Whistler.

Transportation Action Plan Process

Following research gathered from a variety of transportation experts, community leaders and significant community input, the Transportation Advisory Group (TAG) reviewed Whistler’s transportation vision and developed a series of Transportation Action Plans using a consensus model.

The community transportation vision is to create an integrated transportation system that provides efficient and affordable options while minimizing environmental impact. Integrating parking and highway management, transit service and active transportation actions address the current reality and reflects community support for action. The community transportation vision is long term, and the short and medium-term actions introduced are the first steps in improving transportation for everyone. 

Revenues from user paid parking in Day Lots 1 to 5 are generating funds needed to expand transit and active transportation services.
