2018 Kimberley/Cranbrook BC 55+ Games Transportation Services

Although most Games participants choose to provide their own transportation needs in order to have more control over their Games experience, Transportation Services will be provided to most venues in the 2018 Kimberley – Cranbrook BC 55+ Games, and specifically those with no or limited parking. We encourage you to be resourceful; get to know others in your sport and car-pool or share transportation where possible.

Note: Travel distance between Cranbrook and Kimberley is 29 km; average travel is 20 to 30 minutes.

The use of Transportation Services is open to all accredited participants, supporters, and volunteers, and all must wear their accreditation badge to access transportation. Participants should stop at the Transportation table during Accreditation for information and to pre-book transportation to sport venues, Ceremonies, Special Events, the BC Senior Games AGM, and between Cranbrook and Kimberley.
