Developing a multi-modal strategy

This strategy addressed the needs of private passenger vehicles, car-pooling, commercial vehicles, public transit, cyclists and pedestrians to guide transportation decisions to 2031.

Opus reviewed the long-term transportation needs of the District of Squamish to develop a multi-modal transportation strategy. The District wanted to become less dependent on motorized travel, however the terrain,  sprawl, lack of infrastructure and weather created challenges to encouraging non-motorized travel.

Opus focused on improvements that would be most likely to achieve modal change, such as safe routes to school and regional ride-sharing opportunities. Supporting policies & funding strategies were identified & prioritized. Opus developed an implementation strategy for the District in order for them to meet their transportation goals. 

A truly multi-modal strategy which addressed the needs of private passengers vehicles, car-pooling, commercial vehicles, public transit, cyclists and pedestrians was created which would guide transportation decisions through to 2031.
