Chilliwack is situated along the TransCanada Highway, connecting to Vancouver, the USA and Pacific Rim markets. Chilliwack is a popular truck stop for long haul trucks, as the city has no municipal tax on fuel. Chilliwack is home to about 60 national and local trucking firms, including 19 common carriers and 14 local terminals. In addition to a public bus transit system, the city also has an inter-urban bus service with Greyhound and the Fraser Valley Express.
Chilliwack Airport (YCW) services an estimated 60,000 air movements annually. It can accommodate such heavy aircraft as the RCAF Hercules, but it primarily services pilot training and recreational flights from all around BC and south of the border.
For regional and international air travel, scheduled flights are available from Abbotsford International Airport (about 40 kms from Chilliwack) and Vancouver International Airport (about 100 kms from Chilliwack).
Deep sea transportation is handled by Port Metro Vancouver, which offers 28 deep-sea and domestic marine terminals, servicing containers, bulk, other commercial shipments, and several
passenger cruise lines.
Car and truck transportation to Vancouver Island and the surrounding islands is provided by BC Ferries, with two main ferry terminals at Tsawwassen and Horseshoe Bay.
There are also several tug boat companies that offer barge transportation along the Fraser River.
