Active Transportation in California
This page last reviewed on January 7, 2015
Active transportation includes any method of travel that is human-powered, but most commonly refers to walking and bicycling. By walking and riding bicycles more often, Californians can make strides towards meeting the recommended daily activity levels, saving money on transportation costs and reducing their carbon footprint. Combined with other transportation and land use strategies, active transportation can help build more sustainable communities in California.
