Commuting During the 2010 Olympics

Here are 7 commuting strategies to consider for February 2010:

  • Take transit

    VANOC's transportation plan will see greatly expanded transit services, including additional local transit buses, SkyTrain cars, extra Westcoast Express trips and express bus routes.

  • Carpool

    Start planning ahead. Carpool with your coworkers or neighbours, or register for ride sharing at Jack Bell RideShare and find the perfect carpool partner. Visit www.ride-share.com.

  • Work from home

    If you work near one of the game venues, or downtown Vancouver, make arrangements with your company to telecommute.

  • Work flexible hours

    If your job allows it, consider going into work and leaving work earlier or later than usual to avoid peak travel times. Peak travel times in Metro Vancouver are 7am - 9am and 4pm - 6pm.

  • Ride your bike

    It isn't only healthier for the environment; it's good for you too. And with the recent opening of the Central Valley Greenway, a 24-kilometre stretch of designated bike and pedestrian paths that run from Science World to the New Westminster Quay, there are more options for biking than ever. City bike routes are available at www.vancouver.ca/cycling.

  • Walk this way

    It may not take as long as you think to walk to and from work. Most people can easily walk half a kilometre in 5 minutes. You might even consider jogging to work!

  • Plan a vacation during the 2010 Winter Games

    If you're planning a getaway this winter, consider timing it with the 2010 Winter Games.
