THE SCARBOROUGH OPPORTUNITY GRAPHICS .jpg

JOIN US FOR THE LAUNCH OF "The Scarborough Opportunity: Towards a Comprehensive Walking and Cycling Network!" Great work by Professor Sorensen and students from UTSC Human Geography department.

Active transportation — especially walking and cycling — is the most efficient, equitable, sustainable, and accessible form of mobility, yet existing infrastructure actively discourages it in Scarborough, and the city has made little progress in improving this situation

This report provides recommendations to help the City of Toronto jump-start its policies for active transportation in Scarborough and achieve its policy goals for sustainability, inclusion, and safer, more vibrant streets

We call on the City of Toronto to develop a long-term plan to build a comprehensive active transportation network in Scarborough. 

This report is the product of a faculty-student collaboration in City Studies, sponsored by the Suburban Mobilities Research Cluster at the University of Toronto.
