Why use this Metric?
Vehicle emissions contribute to air and water pollution. Road infrastructure including parking lots, contribute to stormwater runoff, urban heat island effect and occupy land that could otherwise be green or living space. Reducing automobile use, improving regional transportation systems and local transit networks, expanding travel demand management programs (e.g. Smart Commute Brampton-Caledon) and encouraging active transportation such as cycling and walking will promote healthy lifestyles while improving Brampton’s air quality and reducing its GHG emissions.
