In the months leading up the Expo, Evergreen staff posed 10 regionally-based transportation challenges to leading innovators and experts who were asked to share their ideas in a series of brainstorming sessions, or “charrettes”. TCAT staff and steering committee members were invited to participate in three of the challenges: Shared Spaces, Energyway, and Boom or Bust.
An ingenious part of the exhibit is Month in a Car, where a student has agreed to spend a month in a car. With an average car commute of 80 minutes on average per day, this live demonstration represents the entire month (!) that many Torontonians spend in their car each year.
