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

Publisher/Sponsor: 

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.
