Whistler Transit Future Action Plan, September 2022
The Whistler Transit Future Action Plan (TFAP) acts as the refresh document to the Sea to Sky Transit Future Plan adopted by Council in 2015. The TFAP upholds community goals and objectives contained in the RMOW Official Community Plan and works to strengthen the link between transportation and land use in support of sustainable growth. These plans also serves to inform any future local or regional transportation plans.
The role of the Transit Future Action Plan is to:
- Build on the existing 2015 Sea to Sky Transit Future Plan (TFP) and add service and infrastructure priorities for the community
- Review what has changed for the community
- Inform both the planning and operational activities
- Drive a range of objectives and actions that will deliver a fit for purpose network across the community
- Guide decision making to procure and deliver the desired network
- Engage with the community

Regional Transit Initiative

Regional transit will help connect the communities and improve mobility and affordability, as well as reduce environmental impacts and traffic.

Transit is just one component of Whistler’s transportation network. 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.
