Encourage Sustainable Transportation Choices

Why it's important to the region

Employment and residential growth is being concentrated in Urban Centres, Frequent Transit Development Areas (FTDAs), and other transit-oriented communities. Most of the region's Urban Centres and FTDAs are located near the Frequent Transit Network (FTN). By concentrating people and activities into these areas, the need for personal vehicle use may be reduced, and the demand for sustainable transportation choices – walking, cycling, transit, and carpooling – may increase.
