Sustainable Transportation Modes
We measure progress towards long-term outcomes by tracking key indicators for the Peel community.
Why is this important?
- Being physically active has positive impacts to our health and well–being, the environment, and our local economy.
- Choosing transportation options like walking, cycling, or public transit is more environmentally–friendly than using personal automobiles, and helps reduce traffic congestion.
How is this measured?
- Ontario's Transportation Tomorrow Survey is a voluntary household travel survey that collects information about daily travel, every five years.
- The Survey asks participants how each member in their household (age 11 years or older) travelled on the previous day.
What progress are we making?
- The Region of Peel is currently updating the Long Range Transportation Plan. The plan's vision is that Peel Region will have a sustainable, efficient, integrated and safe transportation system that supports healthy communities, a vibrant economy and viable mobility choices for people of all ages and abilities.
- The Region of Peel has also released its first Sustainable Transportation Strategy. The purpose of this strategy is to guide the Region of Peel in its efforts to offer a safer, more efficient and healthier transportation system, and to make walking, cycling, public transit and carpooling more desirable to more people. The vision of the strategy is to have 50% of peak period morning trips made by these sustainable modes.
