Learn the many ways to get around in an environmentally friendly way.

Sustainable transportation choices support healthy, vibrant and livable communities.

Take Action

  • Traffic can be a big headache. Lessen the traffic by using alternative modes of transportation. Walk, bike or try taking Edmonton Transit instead of driving. Edmonton Transit is committed to offering environmentally-friendly transportation. Just one bus can replace about 50 private cars on the road!
  • Why not share a ride? It's a great way to get to know co-workers, save money and help the environment.
  • Be Idle Free. Idling your vehicle not only wastes gasoline (and therefore, money), it also causes needless pollution and can be damaging to your vehicle. Protect your wallet and your health - be aware of your idling habits.

Find events, projects and community walking maps. 

Downtown, Southside and West Central bike routes are open year round. Learn how to navigate by car, bike or on foot.

Using public transportation rather than driving private vehicles reduces our environmental impact.

Electrification of our transportation system, from electric vehicles to e-bikes, helps to reduce our emissions and our reliance on fossil fuels

Sharing a ride even once a week can help ease the stress of commuting and save you more than 10% of your commuting costs.

Unnecessary idling costs Canadians millions of dollars every year and it's a major contributor to climate change.
