What is Active Transportation?

Active transportation is human-powered transportation. You might:

  • Walk to the grocery store
  • Cycle to work
  • Kayak to a picnic
  • Ski to school

If you get to your destination under your own power, that’s active transportation.

Active transportation also includes travelling with the help of a device that gives you a boost, such as:

  • Mobility aids
  • Electric bikes (e-bikes)
  • Electric kick scooters (e-scooters)

More and more British Columbians are choosing active transportation as a convenient way to get where they need to go.
