The AWG “Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee” is encouraging all spectators, when possible, to consider walking as their first choice for commuting between venues, restaurants, and their accommodations. If walking is not an option for spectators, the AWG is encouraging the use of a public transportation service. The Bow Valley Regional Transit Services Commission (BVRTSC) is a government agency that provides the ROAM bus service that operates both a local bus service within the town of Banff and regional service between Canmore and Banff.
