The Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation (TCAT), a project of the Clean Air Partnership since 2008, is organizing its third annual active transportation conference in Toronto on Apr 22-23, 2010. (Please note the one day date difference from what was announced in the most recent TCAT News.)
TCAT has worked closely with the Toronto Cyclists Union since it launched last year, helping to build support for this exciting new organization. We are impressed by the excellent job the Toronto Cyclists Union is doing to represent cyclists both in the media and through their advocacy campaigns. They are growing fast but need help to maintain their growth. This upcoming fundraiser is a fun and visible opportunity to show support.
On November 12th and 13th, Healthy Transport Consulting and the Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario is hosting its second annual road pricing conference. Two interactive workshops will focus on the public's perception of road pricing and how diverse stakeholders can discuss this complex issue in a meaningful way. Workshop details and registration here.
October is International Walk to School Month (IWALK), the annual, premier event of the Active & Safe Routes to School (ASRTS) program and a mass celebration of active transportation. Learn more about this international event and IWALK Day on October 7th here.
Roger Geller, Bicycle Coordinator in Portland's Office of Transportation will be in Toronto on October 21st. TCAT, in partnership with the Toronto Cyclists Union and the US Consulate General in Toronto, is happy to present a free public event to hear first-hand how Portland became the first major city in America to be designated as a Platinum-level Bicycle Friendly Community.
