Our Mission is to increase the quantity, quality and safety of active transportation in Guelph!

We will achieve our mission by:

  • Establishing partnerships with residents and organizations to support the Coalition.

Our Goals are to:

  • Encourage more people to walk or ride a bike for commuting and shorter trips.
  • Communicate the benefits of active transportation through community events, bike rides, walks, newsletters and media.
  • Advocate with political and administrative leaders in the City of Guelph to increase the quality, quantity and safety of active transportation.
  • Lobby the City to sign the International Charter for Walking.
  • Redesign major arterials, focusing on street and community design that are safe, convenient, efficient and accessible by people of all ages and abilities.
