Metrolinx Green Paper 3: Active Transportation

1,163 views

Published on

As part of its Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), Metrolinx is committed to developing an active transportation component that will result in a fundamental shift in the way walking and cycling are viewed by the public and accommodated within our transportation system.

This Green Paper presents the benefits, challenges, and opportunities for greatly increasing the role of active transportation in meeting daily needs, and as part of a solution to current and future urban transportation challenges.

A bold plan to make active transportation the first choice for travel, wherever possible, will require collective participation from all levels of government, the private sector, and other agencies. Key allies in advancing active transportation include municipalities, school boards, transit authorities, private developers, and employers. All levels of government can support and guide municipal infrastructure development through cost-sharing, promotional programs, and supportive legislation and policies.

We look forward to reading your comments.
