Our goal: to help achieve our Climate Emergency Action Plan target that two-thirds of daily trips taken be by active transportation and transit by 2030.
Over the past 20 years, the number of people living, working, and travelling in Vancouver has grown, and there are more trips than ever.
Despite this, the total number of motor vehicles entering Vancouver and downtown has declined. More people than ever choose to get around by walking, cycling, rolling (mobility aid, skateboard, scooter, etc.), and transit.
By walking, cycling, rolling, and taking transit more often, you’re:
- Helping your personal health (Healthy City)
- Helping the health of your environment (Greenest City and Climate Emergency Action Plan)
- Alleviating congestion [Transportation 2040, Climate Emergency Action Plan, and Transportation Demand Management Action Plan PDF file (843 KB)] to make room on the streets for vehicles who need to be there most (like goods movement and emergency vehicles)
What's happeningWalk Bike Roll Community Partnership Program
The goal of the Walk Bike Roll Community Program is to increase active travel and support disproportionately impacted communities by partnering with organizations in Vancouver.
Financial support is available for organizations in Vancouver looking to increase active travel (walking, cycling, or rolling including wheelchair, skateboard, or scooter) within disproportionately impacted communities.
Organizations can implement a new project or link their activities to existing programs provided there is a demonstrated increase in program activity.
