Second phase of Vancouver 2010 integrated transportation plan released: TravelSmart and everyone wins in 2010  launched to help public plan ahead

Oct 14, 2009

Vancouver, BC — The 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Transportation Team (OPTT) released the second phase of its Games-time integrated transportation plan today providing residents and businesses with the most up-to-date information available on how to start planning now for their day-to-day travel needs during the 2010 Winter Games. The plan requires reducing vehicle traffic by at least 30 per cent in downtown Vancouver, the Lions Gate and Iron Workers’ Memorial (SecondNarrows) bridges, the Sea to Sky Highway, and in Whistler.

To help residents and businesses plan ahead, the OPTT today launched a website portal with the most up-to-date transportation information available now and during the Games. The portal directs users to the appropriate website containing the information they are seeking, such as the City of Vancouver, Resort Municipality of Whistler, TransLink, BC Transit, or the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC).

This new site is a one-stop resource for 2010 transportation information, including real-time travel and transit updates.
