GSL’s Director, Steven Hoffman, published an op-ed in the Toronto Star about Toronto’s King St. Streetcar pilot project, titled “How King St. Pilot project is improving our health.”
Hoffman comments on the data that was released last week by the City of Toronto, which demonstrates higher ridership, faster commute times, and a marginal increase in profits for local businesses associated with this pilot. He argues in favour of the King St. streetcar pilot project. Not only does this project increase public transit ridership and decrease traffic congestion in the downtown core, it is also improving citizens’ health by increasing physical activity in the built environment.
