Local Motion Episode Five: New Horizons Video Info

Full Title: “Local Motion 2009 Episode Five: New Horizons”

Local Motion 2009 (Ep.5): “New Horizons”
Released May 25, 2009

Edmonton’s new south LRT stations bring fast, efficient rail transportation to the south side. One Parkallen family looks at all the possibilities for going car-free in June.

About Local Motion – An Eco-mobility Challenge

The challenge: how many people from one Edmonton community can leave their personal automobiles at home and get eco-mobile for the month of June? Project teams in the host community and at the City of Edmonton are providing as much help as they can. “Local Motion 2009” video project documents and shares this global first.

About Eco-mobility

The Global Alliance for EcoMobility is one of the partners in Local Motion 2009. For this project, eco-mobility modes are broken down into four categories: cycling (ie. bicycles, tricycles); walking/wheeling (ie. skateboards, wheelchairs, rollerblades); public transit (bus, LRT, DATS); ride-sharing (car-pooling, trip-planning).
