Zero-emissions transportation

Transportation is the largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Winnipeg. It currently accounts for 48 percent of community-wide emissions. Personal vehicle use accounts for most of these emissions, with the rest coming from:

  • Commercial vehicles
  • Public transit
  • Heavy equipment vehicles
  • Off-road vehicles

The City is working to reduce emissions by targeting different forms of transportation. Walking, biking, and bussing are all low-carbon options that the City can promote through its policies and programs. This works with other City initiatives.

Some examples of the work we are doing include:
