For Adrian McCarthy, it is the stinging memory of being passed by public buses in the cold that drove him to choose cycling as his primary mode of transportation.
The 22-year-old is one of many young adults across Ottawa turning to bicycles as a green alternative to the city’s public transit.
...Ecology Ottawa has called upon the City of Ottawa to adopt “Vision Zero,” a global road safety strategy to eliminate cyclist and pedestrian casualties.
“There’s no excuse for people getting killed and injured on streets,” William van Geest, Ecology Ottawa’s Living City program coordinator, said, adding the organization will work with elected councillors and mayors to realize the project.
