Gateway Loop Improvement Project

From October 13 – December, 2017

During fall/winter of 2017 major improvements are being made to The Gateway Loop, the main transportation hub for Whistler's taxis and private bus services located on Village Gate Boulevard. Visitors might notice construction in the area during the summer.

Traffic Changes and Bus/Taxi Drop Off Zone Relocation

Due to construction in the Gateway Loop area, bus and taxi drop off and pick up zones are being relocated.

Bus and Shuttle Pick up and Drop Off zones

For Pacific Coach Lines and Epic Rides, the bus pickup and drop off zone is being relocated to Day Lot 3 near the Audain Art Museum (approximately 5 -10 minutes walk from the Gateway Loop site). For Whistler Shuttle, the drop off/pick up location is being relocated to the pull-out beside the Delta Hotel and Suites on Main Street.

Taxi Zone

Taxi services are being relocated to Sunshine Place (Outside Gone Village Bakery and Tapley's).

Local Traffic

Parking is not available in the loop during construction, and local traffic is restricted to people accessing the businesses only. Additional parking is located in the day lots.
