Ahh, potential. It’s everywhere. Do we have the chutzpah to reach out and grab it?
This report says Toronto has the potential to be a world class cycling city. We just need guts and vision from politicians. If politicians don’t want to have guts, we need to convince them to try.
Toronto has the potential to be a world-class cycling city like Amsterdam or Copenhagen, if only we apply ourselves.
That’s the message of a new report from Toronto’s Metcalf Foundation, which offers 16 recommendations on how to achieve this bold future.
“It’s a very positive and hopeful vision for Toronto,” said Beth Savan, a faculty member at the University of Toronto’s School of the Environment and a co-author of the report with Trudy Ledsham.
She added the city is already moving toward some of the recommendations, including a Vision Zero road-safety plan that aspires to absolutely no road deaths or serious injuries.
