The Resort Municipality of Whistler is constructing a new $6.8-million bus loop for private coaches, such as Greyhound and Pacific Coach, right beside the Whistler Visitor Centre between Gateway Drive and Village Gate Boulevard.

The new facility includes eight bus ports and a large canopy covering 6,000 square feet of area as well as a taxi loading and queue area, public parking, green space, and improved pedestrian spaces connecting with the rest of the Village.

In the future, washroom facilities, public art space, and bike storage could potentially be added to the footprint of the loop.

Construction on the new loop began early last month and is set for completion this October.
