Description

For people to be able to walk, cycle, or roll to meet most of their daily needs, and to rely on transit for other trips, important destinations need to be located where they are easy to access using these modes of transportation.

All organizations should evaluate relocation options and future facility needs while prioritizing central access to transit and robust active transportation facilities.

This action must be done by all governments, social service agencies, and community organizations. Please see below for the most recent publicly available updates.
