Why are mobility pricing measures a contentious issue? Even though a recent poll found that most GTA residents support a downtown congestion charge, building consensus for new road tolls is no easy task. Yet this month there is not one but two stellar events focused on how to pay for the mobility solutions we need in Toronto and the rest of the GTA.
Robert Imrie, Professor of Geography at King's College London, will be in Toronto to give a lecture titled "Designing for Complete Streets: the inter-relationships between vision-impairment and space sharing".

University of Toronto Cities Centre is organizing "Toronto Talks Mobility", a two-day free public gathering of transportation experts, activists, politicians, and citizens to kick-start a campaign for transportation solutions for the greater Toronto and Hamilton area.
As a part of the Toronto in Question Lecture Series at University of Toronto Cities Centre, speakers Steve Munro and Eric Miller will discuss congestion. The lecture is happening Tuesday October 25, 2011 from 6:30 to 8:30pm at the John H. Daniels Faculty 230 College Street, Room 103. For more information, see here.
A self-guided walk developed by TCAT's Neluka Leanage and Nancy Smith Lea has recently been selected to be included in the City of Toronto Self-Guided Walking Tour Database. A self-guided walking tour is a walking tour without a guide, a fee, or a set date or time. It is an opportunity for an individual or group of friends to explore the city at their own pace while learning about their surroundings.
