Transportation & Maps
Pitt Meadows is located about 45 minutes east of downtown Vancouver, just a drive of 45km/28mi along the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1) and the Lougheed Highway.
The easiest way to get to and around this scenic rural destination, as well as the neighbouring community of Maple Ridge, is by car. There are also good public transportation options.
Driving around Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge is simple, as the two municipalities are laid out roughly on a grid system, and the Lougheed Highway provides a central route paralleling the Fraser River.
Two bridges that opened in 2009 have facilitated access to nearby communities. The spectacular six-lane Golden Ears Bridge (tolled), which crosses the Fraser River at 200th Street, links Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge with Langley and Surrey to the south. The Pitt River Bridge (untolled) connects Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge with Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam to the west, via the Lougheed Highway.
