Sustainable Travel & Tips Vancouver
Vancouver is a great destination for sustainable travel, with plenty of options for eco-friendly activities and transportation.
Take public transportation
Vancouver has an extensive public transportation system, with buses, SkyTrain, SeaBus, and West Coast Express. Taking public transportation is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, and it’s also a convenient way to get around the city. Plus, you can purchase a FareCard, which is a contactless smart card that can be used on all buses, trains, and ferries.
Explore by bike
Vancouver is a very bike-friendly city, and many locals use their bikes as their main mode of transportation. Rent a bike and experience the city like a local, while also reducing your carbon footprint. Plus, Vancouver has a great bike infrastructure, with designated bike lanes and plenty of bike racks throughout the city. Just remember to wear a helmet for safety! And be careful of the traffic.
Eat locally sourced, vegan food
Vancouver is home to many great restaurants that use locally sourced ingredients. Eating locally grown food not only supports the local economy, but it also reduces the carbon footprint of your meal by eliminating the need for transportation of ingredients from faraway places. Plus, it’s a great way to try new and delicious food. For the most sustainable option, opt for vegan meals, since the production of a hamburger emits almost 5 times more emissions than the same weight in tofu (Milieu Centraal).
