The Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT) is pleased to announce the release of Cycling Behaviour and Potential in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, a new report led by Ryerson University in collaboration with TCAT that finds very high potential across the region for shifting over 4 million trips from motor vehicle to bicycle.
