B.C. Active Transportation Infrastructure Grant ProgramMinistry of Transportation & Infrastructure
Active transportation relates to human-powered forms of commuting to work, school, recreation, socializing or running errands. It can take many forms and is continually evolving as new technologies emerge. It includes:
- Rolling (skateboarding, in-line skating)
- Other emerging modes that are legal in B.C.
The B.C. Active Transportation Infrastructure Grants Program provides cost-sharing opportunities for network planning grants and infrastructure grants. Funding from these grant programs support the development of active transportation infrastructure for all ages and abilities. For example, infrastructure grants fund:
- Multi-use protected travel lanes
- Pedestrian and cycling safety improvements
- End-of-trip facilities and other amenities
- Lighting and way-finding
