Active Tranportation

Education, Safety, Improved bicycle infrastructure.

Since 2015, ECOllaborate Now has partnered with Cycle Alberni to further active transportation and bike education options across Port Alberni.

Projects have included working with the City of Port Alberni to support implementation of the City of Port Alberni’s Active Transportation Plan, development of a Port Alberni Bike Rack Map, and the YPAV Bike rack project which saw 31 new bike racks come to the City in 2017.

ECOllaborate Now together with Cycle Alberni coordinated Bike to Work Week each year from 2015 through 2019. Hundreds of citizens and school groups participated in rides and celebration stations over the years.
