Active transport includes walking, cycling, rolling, scooting, and other physical modes of travel to work, school, parks, cafes, shops, a friend’s house or other destinations. Using public transport such as catching a bus or train also involves active travel when walking or cycling to and from stops, stations, home and destinations. Active transportation offers benefits for your health, our community, and the environment!

Regular active transport provides all the benefits of increasing your physical activity while also decreasing noise and air pollution. Other benefits include:

  • reducing local traffic congestion
  • reducing greenhouse emissions and environmental impacts
  • increasing community safety
  • improving community health and wellbeing
  • providing low-cost transportation for all ages and abilities
  • supporting local businesses with more people shopping locally
