Ottawa walks to work more than any other city in Canada.
A city of walkers
Ottawa is a city of pedestrians. More people commute by foot in Ottawa than any other city in Canada.
In 2008, the city developed a Pedestrian Plan. Very little in this plan has been realized.
Walking and sustainable transit solutions need to be a priority – on paper and in practice.
