Active transportation policy and legislation
We’re updating our policies and regulations so more British Columbians can choose active transportation and stay safe on our roads.
Pilot projects for active transportation
E-scooters, e-skateboards, and other micro mobility devices are a clean and efficient way to get around in B.C.
These devices aren’t allowed on public roads or sidewalks yet, so we’ve changed the Motor Vehicle Act to let us test ways to introduce them safely.
Pilot projects in several B.C. communities will let us explore the potential of e-scooters and similar devices. We’ll learn what’s needed to keep everyone safe, so we can update our plans and regulations.
- If you’re a citizen who wants your municipality to apply for a pilot project, contact your locally elected officials
- If you work for a local government, apply or learn more about the micro-mobility pilot project
B.C. Climate Action Toolkit
The toolkit provides the latest news, best practices, practical advice, information, and strategic guidance to help local governments successfully reduce greenhouse gas emissions and, at the same time, strengthen their communities.
Vision Zero is an international project that aims to reduce the number of serious injuries and fatalities on the road to zero.
Expanding walking and cycling infrastructure, boosting enforcement of road safety laws and delivering safety education programs are just some of the ways we are making walking and cycling safer across the province.
- B.C. Community Road Safety Toolkit and Vision Zero
