100 Mile House is centrally located in the South Cariboo region on Highway 97, and is 458km/285mi northwest of Vancouver and 90km/56mi south of Williams Lake.
It is accessible either by road or by air, and is a featured stop along various scenic driving routes.
Car and Mini-Bus Travel
While roads in 100 Mile House and outlying communities are paved, many back roads accessing the lakes and guest ranches are not, and may require a high-clearance vehicle. Winter tires are a must for seasonal driving, and drivers should be aware that commercial logging trucks also use these roads.
Having a car is the easiest way to get around the community, although a community bus is available. A relaxed, country-style bus service has been implemented using a HandyDart minibus. The mini-bus provides door-to-door service for seniors and those with disabilities, but also travels on regular routes between 100 Mile, 103 Mile and 108 Mile. The bus stops at posted stops every few hours, and can be flagged down between stops if needed.
