Active Transportation

Bicycle Riding

What is Active Transportation?

Active Transportation is any self-propelled mode of transportation, such as walking, bicycling, or skateboarding. These modes promote active lifestyles and decrease residents’ reliance on vehicle transportation. Residents can then enjoy their cities from ground level, rather than from inside a car. Plus, they won’t get stuck in traffic or battle for parking.
