In the lead up to the 2006 Municipal Elections, TCAT created an Active Transportation Platform that identified actions that the next City Council could take to support cycling and walking – or what we call active transportation. The TCAT plan for active transportation was the result of consultation with over 20 environmental, health and transportation groups from across Toronto.
On November 1, 2006 TCAT released its original platform at a press conference joined by Glen Murray, Chair of the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy, Dr. Alan Abelsohn of the Ontario College of Family Physicians and Gil Peñalosa of Walk and Bike for Life.
With another municipal election on its way in 2010, TCAT once again provided a detailed analysis of concrete steps that the city can take in all areas of its operations to improve walking and cycling in the next term of council from 2010 to 2014. TCAT's 2010 platform titled Action 2014: Taking the Next Step was released on April 16, 2010.
