Funded projects promote Active Transportation to work, school or errands. Active Transportation infrastructure improves safety, reduces traffic congestion, and reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Active Transportation infrastructure projects can also generate tourism-related traffic based on their proximity to amenities and points of interest for tourists, and through linkages to other communities.
