Climate action through transportation

2030 targets

  • 2/3 of trips in Vancouver will be by active transportation and transit
  • 50% of kilometres driven on Vancouver's roads will be by zero emission vehicles

Nearly 40% of carbon pollution in Vancouver comes from burning gas and diesel in our vehicles. 

Reducing our emissions means:

  • Making transit and active transportation the easiest and safest choice
  • Using zero emission vehicles when we do need to drive

Building the future we want

In a city that has transitioned away from fossil fuel vehicles, we'll enjoy:

  • Cleaner air to breathe
  • Better physical health from walking, biking, or rolling
  • Quieter neighbourhoods
  • Reliable, efficient, and affordable transit

Help change the way we move

Land-use planning is a foundational tool to create more complete walkable neighbourhoods.

We advance climate-friendly travel by:

  • Building infrastructure, like sidewalks, bike lanes, bus bulges, and EV charging
  • Delivering policies and programs to support walking, biking, rolling, transit, and zero emission vehicles

This work often involves collaborating with regional partners like TransLink , BC Hydro , other levels of government, and the private sector.

No matter how you get around Vancouver, there are resources and programs to support you.
