Two uOttawa employees show off their bicycles

We would like to create a transportation hub focused at the University of Ottawa. Our goal is to create sustainable transportation alternatives for every campus community member.


Achieve a campus modal share of 85%. This means that only 15% of the campus community use a single occupancy vehicle to commute to campus.


In 2013, the campus modal split was 83%. A campus wide counter-flow bike lane was recently completed.
