A New Name in Support for Walking and Cycling – Introducing the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation

The Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation (TCAT) was formed in 2006 to give a unified voice to the many groups working for a better cycling and pedestrian environment in Toronto. For five years, we have worked toward our vision of cities that are safe, convenient, and enjoyable communities to walk and bike.

Since becoming a project of Clean Air Partnership, a registered charitable organization, TCAT has evolved from a grassroots advocacy organization and is now a respected leader in active transportation research, policy and educational programming. As a result, TCAT is pleased to announce that we are celebrating our fifth birthday by changing our name (but not our acronym!) to the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation.

“The new name better illustrates that TCAT is a great resource for active transportation research and expertise.” – Eric Miller, Director, Cities Centre, University of Toronto.
