Active transportation

Active transportation is any form of transportation that’s powered by human energy. Examples include walking, cycling or wheeling (using in-line skates, skateboard, or a scooter).

Active transportation can be part of an everyday routine. It can be used to get to work or school, go shopping or to visit friends and family. For longer distances, you can combine active transportation with public transit. Taking public transit is good for your health and the environment.  Every transit trip starts and ends with walking, cycling or wheeling which increases your level of daily physical activity. Taking transit also helps to reduce harmful air pollution from having more cars on the road.

Active transportation also gives you an opportunity to go places with friends or family and meet new people.
