All Vancouver Traffic on Google Maps


Vancouver TransLink, the BC Ministry of Transportation, Transport Canada, Western Economic Diversification and the Vancouver Port Authority have got together to provide the ultimate transit map of Vancouver. The website includes seven Google Maps, one each for motorists, transit users, cyclists, users traveling to adjacent regions, visitors and commercial vehicle operators.

The maps show real time traffic incidents (accidents, police incidents etc), current construction projects and events (parades, special events etc). The maps also include live web cams of road conditions. Additional information about conditions on highways, parking options, bridges and tunnels throughout the region and weather can also be viewed via tabs at the top of the map. There are also options for alternative travel such as ride-share and taxis.

Each of the seven maps comes with a number of different options. I haven't the stamina to list them all. I advise you to check out the maps yourself and, if you live in Vancouver, bookmark this site now.
