Green Transportation and Infrastructure
It’s time our cities, towns and transportation systems entered the 21st Century!
Canada’s city planning is outdated. Eighty-two percent of Canadians live in urban areas, yet our roads, public transit systems, sprawling suburbs and disproportionately small municipal budgets are relics of a time when most of us lived in rural areas.
Poor planning means gridlock, longer commutes, mismanaged bike lanes, overcrowded buses, smoggy skylines and unsustainable levels of greenhouse gas emissions from private cars.
Build better, cleaner cities!
Greens want smart city infrastructure, designed for people, not cars. Our Green Growth Plan includes upgraded municipal transportation budgets, bike lanes and pedestrian pathways.
Canadians should love where they live!
We dream of cities and towns connected by modern railways and convenient public transportation — places where Canadian workers and families can move freely and easily experience all their regions have to offer.
That’s why Green MPs will:
Create a smart, clean National Transportation Plan
Electrify our transportation options
Reinvest in our national rail network
Increase federal funding for municipal pedestrian, cycle and car-sharing infrastructure
Reinvest in public transportation to make it affordable, safe, convenient and comfortable
Offer rebates for electric vehicles
Mandate energy retrofits for all government buildings by 2030
