Darnel´s project idea is about cargo bikes, trikes, and enclosed cargo cruisers which are innovative tools that can be used to deliver goods and transport people. Using a recreational bike is often impractical. There is no space to put a week’s groceries, carry children, or pack crates for delivery. Enabling people to make practical trips without a car will reduce congestion and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while helping families and businesses save money.
This pilot will demonstrate these benefits by showing the public that using cargo bikes makes sense. The pilot proposes to cover the cost of cargo bikes for participants who are willing to a) use them for at least 16 months as part of their daily activities, and b) actively communicate about their experiences in ways that are highly visible to Ontarians.
