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.
Economical, convenient, green!

Ride a Bike
Tremendous health and fitness benefits, plus lower transportation costs!
Cycling is an important transportation option for Kamloops, and any city, given its benefits of being an economical, healthy, and environmentally friendly way to travel short to medium distances.
In Kamloops, recreational cycling has long been a deeply ingrained part of the community’s culture. Cycling is becoming a more common form of transportation for daily and weekly travel trips within the city. The Transportation Master Plan identifies future multi-use pathways, on-street bicycle lanes, and shared bicycle routes to support cycling as a viable transportation mode.
As we move forward together creating a happy and healthy community, we encourage cyclists and motorists to commute safely together.
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.
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.
Ride the bus, walk, cycle, or carpool - the choice is yours!
