On June 19, 2018, the Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT), in partnership with 8 80 Cities, Cycle Toronto, Friends and Families for Safe Streets, and Walk Toronto, launched #BuildTheVisionTO: Safe and Active Streets for All, a set of 15 municipal election priorities for building streets where people of all ages and abilities can get around actively, sustainably and safely.
A survey is being distributed to all of Toronto’s mayoral and city council candidates to gauge their support for the 15 priority actions within seven themes. These priorities will improve road safety, increase physical activity, and build safe and active streets for all ages and abilities. Candidate responses will be published on this website a month ahead of the municipal election on October 22, 2018.
Read more below about each of the priorities and the evidence behind why we believe these concrete actions will make a difference in Toronto. Or download the complete report: #BuildTheVisionTO: Safe and Active Streets for All
