What is Active Transportation? “Active Transportation” is an umbrella term for all the ways people can get around without using a motorized vehicle. This term emphasizes the role of physically active forms of transportation in improving community health. It reinforces that bicycling and walking are valid forms of transportation, not just forms of recreation, and it is a more inclusive term that reflects the use of mobility assistance devices, such as wheelchairs and scooters, and other modes, such as skating or skateboarding.
