The Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation (TCAT), representing more than 25 community organizations across Toronto, was formed in 2006 to give a unified voice to the many groups working for a better cycling and pedestrian environment in Toronto.
Toronto’s Bike Plan (www.toronto.ca/cycling/bikeplan) was approved by Council in July 2001 for implementation beginning in 2002 until 2011, with an estimated cost of $66.8 million over the 10 years. Many of the plan’s short and medium-term goals have not been met. Immediate action is needed to catch up and then continue to meet the plan’s targets by 2012. TCAT has identified the following priorities relating to the Bike Plan’s major focus areas.2007 Bike Plan Priorities
