Beaconsfield a pied ou a velo

Beaconsfield, get walking, get biking!

Active mobility is instrumental in the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle, which is at the heart of the principles of the City of Beaconsfield. This initiative demonstrates the City’s determination to contribute to the creation of favourable conditions for the health and quality of life of its residents.

Under the theme of Beaconsfield, get walking, get biking!, this new campaign aims at making citizens more aware of respectful and safe sharing of the road in order to promote active commuting such as walking and cycling. It also strives to encourage collective travel and to support neighbourhood shops by promoting local purchasing and enhancing community life.

 

I am ecomobile

Walking and cycling help improve air quality and reduce traffic noise. For your well-being and to help make your neighbourhood more dynamic, walk or pedal for short trips!

Committed to active mobility, the City has adopted an Active Mobility Plan in 2014. While the recommendations set out in this first Plan having been carried out, the City is now in the second generation of measures with the adoption of a new version in 2019. This new Plan presents additional measures deemed necessary to pursue the objective of encouraging residents to make a healthy shift by integrating more active modes of transportation into their daily lives.
