How We're Doubling Active Transportation Trips
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.
Helping More People Choose Active Transportation
Our support for active transportation is part of the B.C. government’s CleanBC plan to make active transportation an option for more people and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and build a better future for all British Columbians.
