"Did we hear you right?"

That's essentially what BC Transit and the Transit Corridor Study Working Group wants to know from you, on March 2-4.

The information presented at these open houses will also be available via an online survey, from February 27, 2017. The SLRD will share these out through our social channels. Follow us on Facebook and twitter.

The Survey

A public survey was conducted in the fall 2016, as part of consultations informing the Sea to Sky Future Transit Plan - a vision for corridor-wide transit 25 years from now.

The survey gathered:

  • demographic information
  • key corridor travel modes and patterns
  • key destinations and desired travel patterns, and
  • factors that influence increased transit mode share. 

Results from over 2700 surveys have been compiled and will be presented at public meetings throughout the corridor. 

Participants commented positively about the overall concept of having new or expanded regional service that connects the communities in the Sea to Sky Region. Many articulated a desperate need for improved transit options.

The Process

The Sea to Sky Transit Future Plan is a 25-year strategic plan that has been developed by BC Transit in collaboration with stakeholders, the public and staff at the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District, the District of Squamish, the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW), the Village of Pemberton, the Lil’wat Nation and the Squamish Nation.

This public consultation is the first phase.

It will inform a detailed report about transit expansion options, with recommended schedules, routes and costs and supporting policies.

This information will also be used to support the development of sustainable governance structures that may support any expanded or new services.
