Your Travel: See Results


As you track your daily commutes, you’re able to keep track of important savings. By choosing sustainable transportation (public transit and walking), you will see the savings of greenhouse gas emissions, money, and calories burned. Your numbers may surprise you! Imagine if more people knew the impact of their travel choices… consider this:

  • 72% of Winnipeggers drive for their daily commute with the vast majority driving alone (Cenus 2016);
  • Transportation emissions make up 38 percent of Manitoba’s greenhouse gas emissions (Climate Change Connections 2021)
  • There are 5,379,024 tonnes of greenhouse gases emitted in Winnipeg annually (City of Winnipeg Report, 2011);
  • The average person in Canada spends $8,600 to $13,000 on their vehicle (versus ~$1,086 per year on a bus pass), which is the third-largest household monthly cost, after shelter and food;
  • 85% of Canadian adults do not get the recommended minimum of 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per week (Heart & Stroke Foundation, 2011).
  • …our individual choices really impact the bigger picture!

Transportation and Air Quality:

Being mindful of our carbon footprint is important as we work towards alleviating the impacts of climate change. It is also important when it comes to the quality of air that we breathe. Air quality is critical to our health. The Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) is a tool to help you plan and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Much like the UV Index helps protect us from the harmful effects of too much sun, the AQHI alerts us to health risks posed by air pollution. The AQHI is measured on a scale ranging from 1-10+. The AQHI index values are also grouped into health risk categories as shown below. These categories help you to easily and quickly identify your level of risk.

  • 1-3 Low health risk
  • 4-6 Moderate health risk
  • 7-10 High health risk
  • 10 + Very high health risk
