We have been advised by the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) that the Gateway Loop, which is the main bus & taxi pick up and drop off point in Whistler, will be undergoing a total upgrade during the period April 3rd to June 30th, 2017.
As a result, there will be no bus or other vehicle traffic movements at the Gateway Loop during this time. Pedestrian access to the surrounding buildings, including the Whistler Visitor Centre, will not be affected.
Islandlink offers service at the Gateway Loop on both their Whistler to Vancouver Island, and on their Squamish to Whistler Commuter Bus services.
RMOW has arranged that all bus services affected by this construction will instead use Day (parking) Lot 3, in the northeastern corner, during this 3-month period. This location is approximately a 5 minute walk from the Gateway Loop, on the other side of Blackcomb Way.
Islandlink passengers with tickets that have already been booked, and which show the Gateway Loop as the pick up or drop off point, will be picked up or dropped off at the temporary bus terminus in Day Lot 3, April 3rd to Jun 30th. There will be no change to the departure or arrival time shown on their ticket.
Islandlink ticketed passengers using any of the other points served by Islandlink, as shown on their ticket, are not affected by this disruption.
New bookings made for travel on Islandlink will continue to show Gateway Loop as the bus stop, albeit for this period pick up and drop off will be in Day Lot 3. In the alternative, Islandlink passengers can book to be picked up or dropped off at many Whistler Village hotels (on Vancouver Island services), or at other locations on the Squamish Commuter Bus as none of these places are affected.
