Sustainable mobility

Sustainable mobility means choosing to travel differently, while reducing the environmental impact of your travels.

In practical terms, this can include:

  • Replacing the use of self-driving with public transit, active transportation or carsharing, daily or as often as possible;
  • Reducing the distance between home and work or favour telework;
  • Optimizing travel or organizing daily activities differently;
  • Choosing a cleaner vehicle or electric vehicle.

There you will find testimonials from people who have chosen to transform their travels and tips for making choices and doing your part.

These initiatives were developed with the support of the gouvernement du Québec.
