The site is well served by public transit,with access to transit route numbers 6, 6a, 6b, 9, 30, 31, 32, 35, 39, 70, 72, 73 75, 83 all within 500m of the subject site—an approximate five-minute walk. These routes provide service to downtown, Sidney, Swartz Bay, Saanichton, UVic, Camosun College, and Langford Westhills Exchange.

Transportation Demand Management

The best transportation demand management strategy is the location efficiency provided by building denser housing forms in walkable/cyclable neighbourhoods with ample access to public transit such as Royal Oak.
