McMaster: tell us about your commute!

This event is a very exciting step in the direction of developing a TDM for McMaster (Transportation Demand Management plan) that initiated with TLC just over two years ago.

Lots happened behind the scenes to bring us to this point. Please participate and help McMaster manage transportation for the future so as to make efficient use of non-automotive modes like cycling, bike share, walking, car-pooling, and car sharing.

Reducing parking demand at McMaster opens up space for alternative uses: see Restore Cootes for a great example.

Wholly Mary

When TLC started as an all volunteer citizen activist group, we always desired to see support for alternatives to Single Occupancy Vehicle use more widely spread, and this is a perfect example of that impetus.
