Throughout 2020, communities around the world observed an upward trend in walking, cycling and being active outdoors. But despite these increases, people's preference for driving is significant.
How can we adapt to support this growing interest in walking and cycling, and ensure that people have access to active, affordable and healthy modes of transportation?
I co-wrote an article on this topic with Armi de Francia for the Ontario Traffic Council Magazine's winter 2021 edition.
