What is Active Transportation?
Active transportation refers to any form of human-powered transportation - walking, cycling, wheeling, in-line skating, skateboarding, skiing or paddling.
Active transportation is something everyone does in some form or another, whether it is walking to the bus stop, going for a bike ride with the family, or cycling to school.
Residents who turn to active transportation as a viable means of commuting and carrying out personal business realize benefits in terms of health, happiness, reduced travel costs and the satisfaction that their travel produces almost no pollution, benefiting the environment.
