Learn, move, and connect with active transportation

What is active transportation?

Active transportation = human-powered mobility

When we use our own energy to get around great things can happen. We get moving outside and connect with nature and neighbors. We reduce local climate impacts by not relying on gas-powered transportation. We promote safer streets and more resilient communities. There are many active modes to choose from, and here on the Central Coast we celebrate all of them!

  • Walk
  • Bike
  • Skateboard
  • Scooter
  • Rollerblade
