Globalnews.ca: "EDMONTON – The transit advisory board recommended Wednesday that a less expensive pass for the Edmonton Transit System (ETS) should be available to low income passengers.

Open Streets Calgary joining forces 2014!

facebook event : "What could the community achieve if there was more cooperation between organizations? Through collaboration and facilitation we aim to raise awareness about all the various pedestrian, cycling, and other alternative transportation programs that are currently in action within this city. For example the 'Open Streets' Arusha initiative will only work if more community groups are involved and support our efforts.

So what does your organization do and how can we collaborate? How can we make our organizations even more effective this coming Summer!

We will also have a few speakers organized to get the event off to a positive start!

Tracey Braun from Calgary Car Share will be presenting!"

Calgarians for Transportation Choice

A coalition of NGOs dedicated to healthy, active, vibrant, safe, & sustainable YYC communities that enable walking, wheeling, cycling, transit, carpooling, & carsharing.: "We envision Calgary as a place where kids and adults alike feel comfortable walking, riding their bikes, rollerblading, skateboarding, or taking the bus to school or work. We think that everyone should be safely accommodated on our streets, from young parents pushing strollers, to seniors requiring a wheelchair, and everyone in-between."

People in Edmonton want #walkability, #publictransit

Happy Rails: " In Avenue’s latest survey of more than 1,200 readers, 80 per cent said access to transit and LRT are very important, compared to just 64 per cent who felt the same way about major roads. Pedestrian friendliness (94 per cent) was twice as important to them as parking, which also indicates many Edmontonians are turning away from vehicles."
