Our CleanBC plan puts the province on the path to a better future, and in the coming months we’ll be engaging British Columbians on ways to make active transportation options more convenient and affordable. We’re aiming to work in partnership with communities to make all forms of active transportation, whether it’s walking, cycling, or other mode, convenient for people of all ages and abilities. Working together, we can make communities more livable with CleanBC investments that will change how we live, work, and get around – making life better and more affordable while reducing our carbon footprint.
Over the next two months, the public is invited to participate in the online discussion forum below about active transportation.
