The building’s location at the foot of the Galloping Goose Regional Trail,which travels along the Trans Canada Highway between Saanich Road to thesouth and the Old Island Highway to the north, will appeal to residents insearch of alternative transportation options and a direct cycling or walkingartery to downtown Victoria or the Westshore. Future rapid bus servicesalong the highway – which are entering their first phase with the constructionof a dedicated northbound transit lane and a southbound transit lane inplanning – will provide residents with transit-based transportation optionsconnecting the region.
