Traffic evaporation means we can reach B.C.’s new climate roadmap promise of 25% less traffic – straight.com

In most ways, the CleanBC Roadmap to 2030 released by the provincial government on October 25th is a huge disappointment.
But the transportation section included a big surprise.
Instead of only the expected focus on electric cars, the Road to Transformation section calls for reducing “distances travelled in light-duty vehicles by 25% by 2030, compared to 2020”.
This is an apparent reversal of long-standing provincial policy of planning and building for ever-increasing automobile traffic volumes.
