Getting around Calgary: travel options
The Calgary Transportation Plan aims to make all modes of travel more convenient and sustainable by providing choices for Calgarians when travelling around the city. Getting around Calgary can help you explore your transportation options. Whether you are travelling on wheels, rails or on foot, sustainable travel choices will make more efficient use of transportation infrastructure and decrease traffic congestion by:
- Reducing the number of vehicles on the road.
- Increasing the use of pedestrian and cycling infrastructure.
- Increasing the use of public transit services.
Walking, cycling, transit and carpooling are the most sustainable and accessible modes because they require less energy, infrastructure and money to build. If you are going to drive, consider carpooling and carsharing as a way to reduce your impact on the environment.
