A Bit About Us
We advocate for accessible and active transportation, and for free, sustainable mass transit. We challenge the idea that cars are the default way to get around.
Join the #ChallengeCarCulture Coalition and #ThinkOutsideTheCar with us. Private vehicles are not our future, and they do not serve our planet or our communities. While they've come to be thought of as the default way to get around, this hasn't been the case for most of human history and it's pretty obvious who's benefiting...the automobile and petro industries! We can do better. We can move as a community with free, accessible, public transit, and walkable, bikable, rollable neighbourhoods.
Hits & Near Hits Survey
The Challenge Car Culture Coalition wants to hear from YOU if you've had a hit or near hit with a motorist in NL.
We are building a map of areas, and a list of issues, that are dangerous for non-motorist and need to be addressed.
Advocating for Accessibility
On International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Dec 3rd, 2020, we gathered in honour of those who have been injured or killed trying to navigate our inaccessible, dangerous sidewalks. We gathered to bear witness for those who are isolated in their homes for half of the year, every year, due to negligent sidewalk clearing. Access is a right not a privilege and our city is failing to safeguard the rights of People with Disabilities in even the simplest, most basic ways.
We gathered with three asks:
1. Clear our sidewalks with the same priority as adjoining streets.
2. Use a Universal Design approach in all further developments, including the Kelly's Brook Shared Use Path: consult Universal Design experts and community members with diverse lived experiences and accessibility concerns.
3. Reverse the recent cuts to Metrobus.
Help us shine a light on a hidden injustice: the accessibility crisis in our city.
