Car-Free Streets on University Campuses Approved

Earlier this month, Toronto City Council approved plans to make pedestrian streets on the University of Toronto and Ryerson University campus permanent for at least the next five years.

Parts of Gould and Victoria Streets on the Ryerson campus, and part of Willcocks Street on the UofT campus have been pedestrian-only streets as a test project. Temporary street furniture was installed, and the areas hosted community events and student recreational activities. According to reports by UofT and Ryerson newspapers, students have appreciated the streets so far and look forward to continue using these car-free spaces.
