Welcome

We are an interdisciplinary team of university researchers, city partners, and national organizations looking to catalyze the implementation of sustainable transportation interventions to support health, mobility, and equity outcomes in jurisdictions across Canada and Australia. Specifically, our research is focussed on All Ages and Abilities bicycle networks and Speed Management interventions.

Mission & Vision

Mission

To understand the key implementation factors for the scaling up and scaling out of sustainable transportation interventions across different municipal contexts, to support health, mobility, and equity goals.

Vision

To accelerate a dramatic increase in the number and diversity of people using sustainable transportation in Canada and Australia.

About

CapaCITY/É is an interdisciplinary research team working to understand why and how cities implement sustainable transportation interventions, specifically All Ages and Abilities bicycle networks and speed management interventions.

Implementation Science and Healthy Cities

Implementation science, used primarily in health care interventions, is focused on understanding how interventions or policies come about, how they can be translated to new contexts or scales, and who benefits. Applying and advancing implementation science in the realm of healthy cities offers an opportunity to support cities as they implement sustainable transportation interventions.
