BC Transit has released the results of their online survey as part of the Sea to Sky Transit Future Plan.

The plan is part of a strategy of what transit networks in the region should look like 25 years from now. It includes what the priorities should be as well as what infrastructure and investment is needed to achieve it.

Over 2,700 residents took the survey online, over 1,200 of those participating were from Squamish. 85% of respondents were from either Pemberton, Whistler or Squamish, 73% of all questioned had access to a vehicle. When asked what the top three factors that were most important for new or expanded public transit was, ‘regular, frequent service’, ‘reliable’ and ‘minimized travel time’ were voted the highest.
