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.
Let’s Get Moving, Whistler
Released in 2017, the Short-Term Transportation Action Plan comprised a series of actions for implementation over the summer and winter seasons heavily focused on reducing peak-day/peak-season parking and highway congestion in Whistler.
Building off earlier work, the Medium-Term Transportation Action Plan covers the 2018-2019 timeframe to provide new and improved transportation options.
The Whistler Transportation Action Plan 2018–2028 is the new long-term transportation plan for the community.
The Transportation Advisory Group (TAG) was reactivated in 2015. TAG is composed of a group of diverse stakeholders representing the RMOW, Whistler Blackcomb, Tourism Whistler, the Whistler Chamber of Commerce, BC Transit, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and four citizens-at-large.
Informed decision making, based on research and monitoring, is a key component in the development and continual refinement of the Transportation Action Plans. View reports, results and presentations.
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.
