What % of Canadians are not active enough to maintain their heart health?
Correct! Are you one of the 35% being active every day? Then you rule. If not, then you don’t rule as of yet... but you could still rule if you add walking, cycling or transit to your daily routine and become more active. Cause really, we all want to rule.
Wrong! It's a whopping 65%! That’s a Lot of Canadians. But just adding walking, cycling or transit to your daily routine, you can join the 35% who are active... or maybe we need an Amazing Race show in all our neighbourhoods? You’re next clue is down the block and around the corner - Go!
85% of Metro Vancouverites have a bus stop within how many metres of their home?
Correct! Are you taking advantage of transit in your neighbourhood? If so, we might just have to put your face on the bus to celebrate You! Or does your face prefer swimming? You should be on the SeaBus! We’ll go talk to our Marketing team right now!
Wrong! It's a mere 400 metres. Think of how close that is the next time you go to grab your car keys. Because walking that short distance can add many benefits to your day, and maybe let you finally meet your destiny of being cast for the next James Bond movie. We know you think about that!
What is the target Metro Vancouver has set to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2020?
Correct! You're so smart, you must already be TravelSmart - cycling, walking or taking transit whenever you can to reduce cars on the roads and GHG emissions. High five!
Wrong! It's 33%. Since you didn’t know that, you might also not know 35% of BC's GHG emissions come from Metro Vancouver cars. Are you a contributor?! Shame on you - we’re telling your Mom!
We know to wear a helmet, but did you know there was a law regarding bicycle lights?
