Cycling, Walking, Transit Top Priority in Climate Plan Survey

Not surprisingly, clean transportation including cycling, public transit and walking was the top transportation priority of people who responded to the BC Government's Climate Leadership Plan survey.

In response to Question 2: Where would you like to begin, 50% choose "Increasing use of clean, coordinated transportation such as public transit, carpooling, shared travel, bicycles and walking should be a government priority. Of course we will have to do all the measures including increasing the cost of fossil fuels and regulations & incentives to increase the use of cleaner fuels to meet our climate targets.

However, this is yet another clear signal to the government that people want increased investment in cycling, walking and transit. The B.C. on the Move had similar results.

With Premier Clark indicating that spending will increase leading up to the next election, now is an ideal time to show your support for cycling and walking.

Please sign the Cycling and Walking for Everyone petition and share it with your friends, family and co-workers.

Please Premier Clark know that you want more cycling. Let her know what greatly improved cycling would mean for your family and community. 

You can find more details on what we are proposing here.

Here are our recommendations:

I call upon the Government of BC to enable everyone in BC to cycle & walk in safety as part of their daily lives by implementing an Active Transportation Strategy that includes:

  • Investing $1 billion over the next ten years to:
    • Upgrade cycling & walking facilities on provincial roads & bridges
    • Complete cycling & walking networks in communities across BC
    • Provide safe routes to school for children
    • Build trails & routes for cycling & walking tourism
  • Ensuring that paths & protected bike lanes can be safely shared by people using wheelchairsskateboards & in-line skates
  • Enhancing cycling education for children & adults
  • Promoting cycling & walking
  • Encouraging electric bike use by eliminating the PST & providing rebates
