Green Your Commute
Transportation accounts for about one-third of the greenhouse emissions (GHG) in Toronto. We have to change how we get around our city.
- 100 per cent of vehicles in Toronto will use low-carbon energy.
- 75 per cent of trips under 5 km will be walked or cycled.

Smart Commute works with employers and property owners to promote sustainable commuting options – cycling, walking, public transit, and carpooling – to employees and tenants.
Vehicles are the source of approximately one-third of Toronto’s greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Switching passenger, freight and transit vehicles from gasoline and diesel to electric and other low-carbon fuels is a central part of the City’s plan to reduce GHG emissions 80 per cent by 2050. The transition to electric and other low-carbon fuels will also significantly reduce local air pollutants that affect the health of Toronto residents.
