Active transportation is any form of human-powered transportation, the most common of which are walking and cycling. Active transportation provides health and economic benefits to individuals, businesses, as well as the wider community. For this reason, the Downtown Yonge BIA is committed to increasing active transportation usage within the area through education, advocacy and free cycling-related services.
Research, Education & Advocacy
The Downtown Yonge BIA has developed educational materials intended to encourage commuters to incorporate walking and cycling into their routes. We have also begun to collect information on local commuting patterns as a way to track the progression of active transportation uptake over the years.
