Squamish Chief surveyed 121 Squamish Chief readers and asked the question: Should there be congestion pricing on the Sea to Sky highway? (Making users pay to drive during rush hour.)
While authorities in other parts of the world – London, Stockholm and San Diego –
have implemented congestion pricing to deal with heavy traffic, it’s not something people want to see on the Sea to Sky, according to a recent survey.
Congestion pricing involves charging drivers for using a road during peak hours.
Squamish Chief polled 121 Squamish Chief readers and asked the question: Should there be congestion pricing on the Sea to Sky highway? (Making users pay to drive during rush hour.)
The survey took place from 06/30/2022 to 07/06/2022. Of the 121 votes, we can determine that 45 come from the community. The full results are as follows:
Yes. 11.11% local, 17.36% overall
No. 75.56% local, 73.55% overall
Not sure. 13.33% local, 9.09% overall
The findings are based on an online survey of adult Squamish Chief readers located in Squamish. The margin of error – which measures the variability of the sample – is +/- 8.88%, 19 times out of 20.
