Olympic crowds set to swell this week

The city is certainly ramping up for another busy week of Olympic action and spirit.

Men’s and women’s hockey and curling quarter- and semi-finals will be taking place, to name a few highlights.

We’re expecting some of the biggest crowds we’ve seen yet, so you know what that means.

Yes, it’s even more important to continue to leave your car at home and use public transit.

Pedestrian corridors will be packed so wear comfortable shoes for walking around and taking in the sites.

Long lineups are again anticipated at pavilions and restaurants downtown.

Don’t shy away from making the trek up to Whistler. Non-permitted vehicles have to avoid the Sea-to-Sky between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. only, so work around that time and head up there.

I have heard that the commute up is just great — super light traffic volume, and apparently there is a fair bit of parking available on the Blackcomb side.

Or, leave the driving to someone else and take the bus.
