The Town of Gibsons is committed to supporting the development of a comprehensive active transportation network that will enable residents and visitors to safely walk or bike to various locations within the Town.
In 2018, the Town constructed a low gradient, multi-use pathway along one section of Gibsons Way, as well as an at-grade bike lane and separated sidewalk along another section, to create a connector between Lower Gibsons and Upper Gibsons.
In March 2021, the Town announced that we had received a $675,000 grant which will be used to complete safe, continuous links between the tourism centres of Lower Gibsons and Upper Gibsons. Read more about that project here.
In fall 2021, we completed the Gibsons Connector project by constructing a downhill bike lane between School Road and North Fletcher Road and modifying North Fletcher so that it is more accessible for all user groups.
Virtually all of our active transportation projects include input from Transportation Choices – Sunshine Coast (TraC).
We also actively support Sustainable Sunshine Coast, a newly launched initiative spearheaded by Sunshine Coast Tourism, which is focused on encouraging alternative transportation and supporting tourism businesses and experiences that are better for the environment.
