Transportation

More than one- third of Ontario’s greenhouse gas pollution is caused by the transportation sector, with cars and trucks contributing for more than 70 per cent of the total GHGs produced per the sector, with about 11 million passenger and commercial vehicles regularly travelling Ontario roads. (Ontario’s Climate Change Action Plan, 2016).

Driving a car is the single most polluting thing that most Canadians do, as a typical car emits almost 5 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year. Anti-idling campaigns, transit initiatives, active transportation plans, electric vehicle incentives, carpooling, travel conservation policies and green fleet programs can all reduce the impact of travel and help to fight climate change.


Considerations: How do people and goods move around, into and out of the area? How does the existing transportation network contribute to climate change? Does our transportation infrastructure support multiple modes of transportation? What should our transportation network look like in 20, 40 and 60 years?
