LTA MOBILITY OBJECTIVES
Improving Active Transportation Options in Urban Areas
The London Transportation Alliance recognizes the benefits of providing a variety of active transportation options, including improved health of residents, better air quality and reduced greenhouse gas emissions, a more connected and efficient transportation network and reduced traffic congestion.
- Improve and expand opportunities for bicycling
Expand bike share programs as well as exploring the possibility of a dockless bike network in London to expand access to bicycles. In addition to London’s current system of bike trails and limited on-street bike route network, explore the possibility of adding bike lanes on the following routes
Continue to fund the addition of pedestrian facilities to further connect the London.
Paddling improvements / paddle share
Provide a low-water dam to replace the decommissioned Springbank Dam to allow self-powered water craft to use the Thames River from May until early October. Provide a series of paddle-share stations at several locations along the Thames River, including Springbank Park, Greenway Park, Evergreen Park, Forks Park, Thames Park, Carfrae Park, Harris Park, Gibbons Park and North Branch Park to provide kayaks and canoes. The paddle share and bike share programs would be combined to provide Londoners with city-wide access for walking, bicycling and paddling.
