Filling up is about to get a lot harder in downtown Vancouver, after Chevron confirmed it’s looking to sell its gas station at West Georgia and Bidwell.

The Chevron station is one of only two still around in downtown. The only other gas station left is the Esso station at Burrard and Davie.

In an email statement to Daily Hive, Chevron spokesperson Adrien Byrne said the company has decided to “solicit market interest” in its downtown gas station.

As well, Byrne said, Chevron is also considering selling its gas station at 39th and Dunbar, and its commercial cardlock at 1st and Clark.

Byrne stressed that no final decision had been on the three sites yet, but said Chevron’s decision was down to Vancouver’s “active” real estate market.

“It is apparent to [Chevron] that these particular locations have a higher and greater land-use potential relative to their current operations,” said Byrne.

“Vancouver is a well-planned, liveable and vibrant city. There is an active real estate market in the city and we look forward to participating in that market through this solicitation process.”
