Novae res urbis: Getting Scarborough biking: Latent Demand

16.04.22 Novae Res Urbis

NRU’s Geordie Gordon interviewed Dr. Beth Savan and Trudy Ledsham about research conducted for TCAT’s Scarborough Cycles project.

“While commuter cycling is not the norm in areas that are less dense than downtown Toronto, research shows there is a latent demand in areas of Scarborough.

Toronto Centre for Active Transportation conducted the research in partnership with CultureLink Settlement and Community Services, UofT hosted Toronto Cycling Think & Do Tank and Cycle Toronto. The focus of the team’s work stems from the researchers interest in focusing on areas of cities and small towns where cycling has not traditionally been popular. The research was presented at the Ontario Bike Summit earlier this week.”
