LocalMotion 2009 Episode Eight: Back to the Future Video Info

Full Title: “Local Motion 2009 Episode Eight: Back to the Future”

Local Motion 2009 (Ep. 8): “Back to the Future”
Released June 29, 2009

A 57-year resident discusses what’s changed - and what hasn’t - in Parkallen. The new LRT station gives Local Motion challengers new ways of using transit.

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).
