Sustainable Transportation

Everyone of us uses some form of transportation almost every day for commuting and recreation - whether driving a car, taking the bus, carpooling, cycling or walking. In Canada, each of us makes an average of 2,000 car trips of 3 km or less each year - trips that could be replaced with an active choice of transportation for all or part of the trip. By making the switch from driving alone to another mode of transportation at least part of the time, you can help reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality and save money.

Ride a Bike 

Tremendous health and fitness benefits, plus lower transportation costs! 
Did you know that for distances up to 5 km, cycling is recognized as the fastest mode of transportation from door to door? The City's updated Bicycle Master Plan was approved by Council, Spring 2010.

Walk or Hike 

The ultimate zero emission choice! 
Just 30 minutes of brisk walking every day can help prevent heart disease, assist in weight loss and improve your overall mental well-being. The City is currently updating the Pedestrian Master Plan and writing a Trails Master Plan to guide future pedestrian improvements.

Carpool 

Take a break from driving, enjoy the social benefits, plus save money! 
The average yearly cost to operate a car is almost $8,000 or nearly $22 per day! By participating in a ride sharing program, you can significantly reduce the amount you spend on gas and vehicle maintenance.

Riding the bus, walking, cycling, or carpooling - the choice is yours!
