​Active Transportation

Active transportation is any form of human-powered transportation. Walking and cycling are the primary modes of active transportation.

Active transportation is a legitimate form of transportation that benefits our:

  • Health: it provides an opportunity to be physically active on a regular basis
  • Society: is accessible to residents and increases social exchanges
  • Transportation system: reduces road congestions and road wear
  • Environment: contributes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  • Economy: saves money on gas, parking and may allow families to avoid the purchase of a second vehicle or vehicles all together when coupled with transit services.

Many road design and construction projects underway include bike lanes. In addition, the 2021 Cycling Network Expansion, an active transportation initiative, will significantly improve connectivity in Barrie's cycling network.
