Active Transportation 101: Bringing AT to Your Community and Developing an AT Plan


Ecology Action Center

This new toolkit will help you in your efforts to bring active transportation (AT) to your community.

There are tips on: bringing AT champions together and forming a committee assessing the needs of your community; setting goals and priorities; building community awareness and support; establishing strategic partnerships; getting buy-in from council.

The resource will also guide you through the next necessary steps: developing and implementing your plan; securing funding for plan development and implementation; identifying roles and responsibilities within the municipality; hiring consultants; maintaining strategic partnerships; continuing public outreach; evaluating progress.

There are also AT 101 workshops and an AT Summary for Elected Officials, which describes AT 101 and includes how decision makers can influence active transportation, and a video describing what AT looks like in NS.
