Transportation Issues Committee (TIC)
The Ecology North Transportation Issues Committee (TIC) seeks to improve active transportation options for Yellowknifers. Active Transportation refers to human-powered means of travel and includes walking, biking, skiing or many other forms of mobility. Due to Yellowknife's compact size and flat topography, active transportation is used by approximately a quarter of commuters, representing one of the highest rates of use in North America. As the city has grown these rates have declined however, and there are many ways in which infrastructure and policy can be improved to allow for even greater resident use. The TIC group works closely with the City of Yellowknife and other community partners to encourage healthy commuting options (bike lanes, multi-use trails, improved transit routes, etc). Yellowknife is a small and dense city - why not walk or bike?
We meet the first Thursday of every month at lunch in the EN office. If you have a passion for walking, biking or transit, consider joining TIC and helping others get excited too!
