Planning your next B.C. road trip adventure?
Well, DriveBC has a helper to guide you through your Labour Day weekend travels and throughout the entire year. Whether you’re travelling from Ladner to Whistler or Stewart to Cranbrook, DriveBC’s Plan Your Route feature is with you for the long haul.
Plan Your Route answers most typical road travel questions. For example, How much longer ’til we get there?…Why are we stopped?…Should I pack a raincoat?…
All you have to do is type in your launch point and your destination. Plan Your Route will come up with a map, driving directions to take you from A to B, estimated travel time and your trip distance. Take a look at the directions and you’ll see the webcams views and overhead messages signs that appear along the way, plus any construction notices.
Travel time is estimated, so turn on the icons for “Road Conditions” and “Incidents,” to see what else might be happening along your route. This will help you gauge factors that could affect your travel time.
One more helpful option on the DriveBC Plan Your Route map is weather conditions. Turn on “Weather Forecast” and “Current Weather”, and (with luck) you’ll find pleasant conditions in which to plan a roadside picnic at one of our rest areas. (Please note: preparing the lunch is up to you).
