Ridership rates were steadily increasing from 2014, reaching their peak level of 3.18m in 2019, before the impact of COVID was realized. In 2020 there was a significant decrease to the lowest level of ridership rates on record of 1.4m and the number only saw a slight increase in 2021 with the easing of provincial travel restrictions and social distancing measures. This number is expected to return to previous levels as public health orders are no longer in affect, but the 2022 transit strike may further delay it’s recovery.
Passenger vehicles represent the largest contributor to Whistler’s GHG emissions, and by encouraging the use of transit and the shift away from single occupancy vehicles we can monitor our progress towards environmental goals.
