Sustainable Transportation can be defined as forms of transport that do not exploit or rely on natural resources, but instead use renewable or regenerated energy. Common examples of sustainable transportation include, Electric Vehicles, public transit, cycling, and walking. (Evans, 2011).

 

Sustainable transport drives development, connects local communities to the world, and links people to what they need. In Canada, transportation is seen as one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for roughly 25% of Canada's total emissions (Government of Canada, 2020).

Humber actively supports sustainable forms of transportation, such as public transit – Humber's North campus sees over 1200 buses a day. Humber has also introduced 20 Electric Vehicle charging stations across both campuses.
