VIU Nanaimo Campus Looking West

VIU Mobility Committee

Vision Statement

VIU supports affordable, efficient, equitable, and environmentally responsible ways to travel to, from, and within the University for students, employees, and community members, and integrates with the surrounding communities.

About the Mobility Committee

The committee was part of VIU's response to the high demand for transportation improvements for VIU’s Nanaimo Campus. VIU reviewed the Nanaimo Campus transportation systems and a “made-at-VIU” preliminary plan to address challenges in commuting to the campus has been crafted.

The VIU Mobility Task Force, a working group of volunteers representing all of our key stakeholders – students, employee groups, the City of Nanaimo, the Regional District of Nanaimo and School District 68 – met a number of times between April and mid-June 2018 to review suggestions made at a transportation world cafe and information gathered over the year to come up with some recommended solutions.

All suggestions put forward during a world café event and in a review of the Nanaimo Campus Transportation Demand Report were carefully considered and assessed using the Academic Plan, the Campus Master Plan and the VIU Mobility Task Force’s vision statement.

This list was just the beginning of this work on addressing transportation at VIU's Nanaimo Campus. The Mobility Task Force recommended a committee be established.

The committee has come together since the fall 2018 to review progress on recommendations and promote communication on issues.
