Active transportation survey seeks input to get Kingston on the move
November 15, 2016 -
The City of Kingston wants to know what you think about a variety of measures aimed at encouraging you to choose more active forms of travel – like walking, cycling or using other human-powered devices – more often.
Do the survey at www.CityofKingston.ca/WalkRoll to help shape Walk ‘n' Roll Kingston – the City's active transportation master plan.
"Walking or rolling to your destination is a great way to stay healthy, save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions," says Deanna Green, manager, traffic division. She says the City's target is to have 20 per cent of all trips be made using some form of active transportation (wheelchairs included!).
The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and asks questions about:
- Active transportation networks
- On and off-road infrastructure for human-powered travellers
- Connections to Kingston Transit and parking facilities
- End-of-trip facilities
- Work and school programs and promotions to encourage active transportation as a great choice for commuters
