The winning initiative will show how your municipality significantly reduced its dependence on single occupancy vehicles by encouraging different modes of transportation. For this award, we will consider programs and projects. Plans are not eligible.

Examples of eligible initiatives include:

  • Active transportation design projects, such as the implementation of Complete Streets design elements or cycling pathways
  • Programs and infrastructure to shift or encourage active transportation methods such as cycling instead of driving
  • Transportation demand management programs, such as car-sharing
  • A municipal fleet or transit retrofit that increases efficiency, incorporates innovative technologies or improves levels of service

Winners in each category are automatically eligible for FCM’s Inspire Award. Check out the 2018 Inspire Award winner, a bus orientation program that significantly improved transit ridership in the City of Kingston, ON.
