It’s Your Move
We need dedicated funding for walking and cycling infrastructure in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) to get people safely from doorway to destination. The Big Move, Metrolinx’s 25-year regional transportation plan to dramatically improve transportation in the GTHA, sets aside 25% of funding for local transportation initiatives. To promote the importance of using a dedicated portion of this 25% for local walking and cycling projects, The Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) is launching IT’S YOUR MOVE, a video series that’s part of a strategic partnership with Metrolinx to highlight the many benefits created for cities and people through active transportation.
Each video in this series features a leader living in Halton, York, Peel, Durham, Hamilton or Toronto and shares personal and professional stories about the benefits of active transportation. By promoting how these leaders and residents use walking and cycling to enrich their lives and their communities, each video in turn builds recognition for the importance of walking and cycling networks as we expand regional transportation to move the GTHA.
It’s time to rally voices and share our experience about the importance of active transportation infrastructure in our local communities. Stay tuned to see who is leading the way through IT’s YOUR MOVE.
