Local Motion Episode Two: Hit the Ground Running - Video Info

About Local Motion

Full Title: "Local Motion Episode Two: Hit the Ground Running"

Description: Local Motion 2009 (Ep.2): Hit the Ground Running
Released April 6, 2009

The City staff chose one Edmonton community out of thirteen applicants to host the Local Motion eco-mobility challenge. They picked one that is part-way to eco-mobility, with lots of residents ready to go all the way 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).
