Identifying and Overcoming Barriers to the Implementation of Active Transportation Policies

In partnership with Dr. Paul Hess at the University of Toronto, between 2013-2014 TCAT conducted research that investigates the implementation of provincial and municipal policies that seek to build communities that encourage walking, cycling and public transit use. The research seeks to understand how policies are actually translated into practices that support walking and cycling, the potential barriers that exist, and what tools exist to overcome these barriers. The final report (below) was submitted to Metrolinx on July 7, 2014 and an abridged version (also below) was accepted for inclusion in the 2014 TAC Conference on September 30, 2014 in Montreal.
