Active Transportation

We are working on making it easier for you to walk, bike, scoot or roll throughout the Town of Gibsons.

Active Transportation Network Plan

The Town of Gibsons is committed to supporting the development of a comprehensive active transportation network that will enable residents and visitors to safely get around on foot or with wheels to various locations within the Town.

  • 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 which created safer biking and walking routes between Upper and Lower Gibsons.
  • In February 2023, the Town was awarded a grant from the Province to develop an Active Transportation Network Plan. This project will begin this summer (2023).

Additionally, the Town is currently working to implement traffic-calming measures on Glassford Road and Gower Point Road.

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.
