Transportation

Victoria is easy to get to, and get around. Downtown and surrounding neighbourhoods are compact, and walkable by foot, stroller or wheelchair.

We are the cycling capital of Canada, and enjoy many pedestrian and cycle pathway systems.
 
We are served by an excellent transportation network. Ferries carrying passengers, automobiles, trucks and trailers make more than 100 crossings to and from the mainland daily, linking motorists to Vancouver to the east, Seattle and Port Angeles to the south and Prince Rupert and Alaska to the north. The network also includes an international airport, helicopter and seaplane services and buses. The City of Victoria works to make roads, bike lanes, sidewalks, pathways, and crosswalks safer and more accessible for everyone.
 
October is pedestrian safety awareness month
 
Throughout October the City of Victoria and many of its partners at the Province of B.C. and local police are promoting pedestrian safety and sharing tips on social media and their websites about how to stay safe on city streets as rainy weather starts and it gets darker earlier in the day.
