In this episode, John connects with
Dale Bracewell, Transportation Planning Manager with the City of Vancouver, BC

They discuss how an “All Ages & Abilities” active mobility network, school streets, and other TDM programs, as well as pricing access to the city core all play a critical role in the city’s Climate Emergency Action Plan

Show Notes:

Road space reallocation, All Ages & Abilities active mobility network, e-cargo-bike freight/goods cycle-logistics, school streets, slow streets, and pricing for motor vehicle access in the downtown core – these are all critical factors connected to Vancouver’s newly adopted Climate Emergency Action Plan that John and Dale discuss in this episode.

Their goal is to have 2/3 of trips by 2030 to be walking, biking, and transit. Land use is crucial, creating the walkable “15-minute city”.
