Active transportation refers to modes of transportation that rely on your own energy to move, such as walking, cycling, and in-line skating.
A great transportation system provides residents with multiple options for getting to their destination safely and efficiently. The road network provides access for motorized vehicles, while sidewalks and bike lanes support travel by active transportation.
A well-connected network of trails provides another route for active transportation users to get to their destination, away from busy roads and intersections. The Active Transportation Network Study and the Sidewalk Needs Assessment Update are two opportunities to help improve Guelph’s active transportation network.
