What is Active Transportation?

Active transportation is human-powered transportation that connects your destinations. You might:

  • Walk to the grocery store
  • Cycle to work 
  • Kayak to a picnic
  • Ski to school

If you get to your destination under your own power, that’s active transportation.

Active transportation also includes travelling with the help of a device that gives you a boost, such as:

  • Mobility aids
  • Electric bikes (e-bikes)
  • Electric kick scooters (e-scooters)

More and more British Columbians are choosing active transportation as a convenient way to get where they need to go.

In 2021, the City adopted the Kimberley Active Transportation Network Plan. The purpose of developing this plan was to investigate existing active transportation connectivity, gaps, and opportunities within the City, and to guide the development and implementation of future trails, walking, and cycling facilities.
