Active Transportation

The District of West Vancouver is committed to expanding, diversifying, and improving active transportation options. 

Active transportation options are ways to get to your destination that don’t involve taking a vehicle. Examples include walking, jogging, and riding an electric or regular bicycle. 

The Government of BC aims to double the amount of trips people take by active transportation by 2030. This will mean less vehicles on the road and a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions. Improving mobility and reducing congestion on our roads, including enhancing active transportation, is also one of Council's Strategic Goals.

E-bike Share Pilot Program

The District of West Vancouver, City of North Vancouver, and the District of North Vancouver are taking part in a two-year pilot program to introduce electric-bike share to the North Shore.

Cycling

Cycling is a great way to get around the community. It burns calories, adds muscle, and it leaves zero carbon footprint. It’s important to cycle safely, for you and for everyone you share the roads and trails with.

Walking

Traffic-calming measures, road closures, and improved pedestrian-designated areas make walking in our community very safe.
