Active Transportation Expo

Smart Commute Markham, Richmond Hill (SCMRH) and the City of Markham would like to thank everyone who attended the 2nd annual Active Transportation Expo on Friday, June 8 at the Markham Civic Centre.

Over 90 people attended the expo, with 79 attendees participating in walking, cycling and public transit tours. These tours featured the newly implemented infrastructure in Markham, such as the in-boulevard bike lanes and pedestrian sidewalk on Highway 7 between Town Centre Boulevard and Sciberras Road, Verdale Crossing Bridge, and bus rapid transit lanes heading west to Richmond Hill Centre Terminal. The success of the expo would not be possible without the support of tour guides Shawn Smith from York Region, Brian Lee, Director of Engineering, Richard Wizemann, Public Relations Coordinator from York Region Transit, Loy Cheah, Commissioner of Development Services Arvin Prasad and his team, Councillors Alan Ho and Alex Chiu, Regional Councillor Nirmala Armstrong at the City of Markham, and expo attendees!
