The Callaghan Valley, which will host Nordic competitions and possibly the bobsled/luge/skeleton events, will see up to 20,000 visitors on peak days. The only access to the valley will be by bus. The majority of these will travel from Vancouver, although a few buses will travel south for people staying in Whistler.
There are still a few details to work out that are crucial to the transportation plan, including the location of the athletes village, and the timing and staging of events.
"Were going to have open houses in Whistler with all the different working groups, so if anyone has any ideas how to make the transportation plan better, wed love to have them," says Coward. "Our job is to try and work out the issues as they come up."
The open house Olympic meetings will take place in the New Year.
