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.

Walking adds strength and enjoyment to the fabric of community life and is the most environmentally friendly way of getting around.

Get Involved in planned bike routes or learn about bike route signage and pavement markings helps everyone get along.

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

The demand for fuel efficient vehicles is growing, and that includes electric vehicles.

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.
