Local Transportation

Nanaimo is well connected with transportation and communication links to the mainland and international markets. The area is serviced by two ferry terminals to Vancouver, a regional airport, a seaplane terminal with regular service to downtown Vancouver, and a thriving port facility operated by the Nanaimo Port Authority. The area has a high-speed voice and data connectivity with the latest in communications technology.

Growth has formed the foundations for a balanced economy. It has also provided the means for Nanaimo to focus on other important local changes. A revitalized downtown core and the completion of an 800 – seat performing arts complex are bringing new cultural opportunities to the city’s residents. Investment in the Harbourside Walkway means everyone has access to our beautiful waterfront – to walk, shop or simply have a cappuccino.
