To convert the existing rails within the Vancouver Island Corridor north of Langford into a non-motorized* (e-bike friendly), multi-use community trail.
- Locals would utilize the trail for local commuting or pleasure while avoiding the hazards, congestion and noise of the road.
- Cyclists could travel to and between local communities for shopping, work or pleasure.
- Walkers and hikers could pick up the trail at many locations for a peaceful outing.
- Local businesses would benefit from tourism traffic on the trail.
- The trail would be a drawing card for national and international tourists as the trail would link communities up and down Vancouver Island.
- Existing train stations could be made into information booths giving directions to local attractions and accommodations.
*non-motorized includes e-bikes which are generally classified as bicycles because they only have a small motor to assist a rider’s pedal power.
