Alberta’s high standard of living, diverse and welcoming communities and beautiful landscapes make it a great place to call home. Calgary and Edmonton are the two biggest cities in Alberta. Almost half of Alberta’s population lives in these urban centres. Larger cities have extensive bus and/or train networks. Smaller communities may have public transport, but most Albertans also own their own vehicle.

Light vehicle registrations in Alberta total just under 3.6 million units in 2017 and 2.4 million (66%) are light trucks. The average vehicle age in Alberta is just over a decade (10.3 years). The fleet is anticipated to reach nearly 4 million vehicles by the end of 2022 and over 40% of the vehicles in Alberta will be over 10 years old.
