Active transportation includes all forms of human-powered travel, such as:
- Use of mobility-assisted devices
These forms of active transportation can use on-road or off-road facilities such as trails, sidewalks, walkways, bike lanes, and may also be combined with the use of public transit.
These trips primarily take place to and from work, shopping, entertainment areas, school and community facilities or even to visit a friend. The Active Transportation Plan aims to increase accessibility, tourism potential, and the health and quality of life while reducing vehicle emissions, energy use, and travel or infrastructure costs.
