Sustainable Transportation Task Force Launched

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

The Planning and Design Centre launched the Sustainable Transportation Task Force in July 2010. The Task Force is an independent body formed to engage the public and other stakeholders in the development of a long-term Sustainable Transportation Strategy and identify immediate and long-term actions required to implement the Strategy. The formation of the Task Force responds to a growing interest in enabling a shift toward a more sustainable transportation system for the Halifax region.
