Project Objective

8 80 Streets is a project which aims to accelerate action on reducing pedestrian fatalities. The project will transform three sites across Toronto to showcase how quickly design elements can be introduced to create safer, vibrant, human-centered streets.

INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING?

Sign Up here.

For one hour at the start and end of the school day (8:00 – 9:00 am and 3:00 – 4:00 pm, Mountview Ave will be car-free in front of Keele Street PS so that students can safely walk, bike, or wheel to school!

This will be Toronto’s first pop-up demonstration of “School Streets,” a successful program from the U.K. (Learn more about School Streets here). We hope to demonstrate that streets surrounding schools should be safe for everyone, and to show how we can also use streets for play.

We encourage students to walk, bike, or wheel to school every day, but especially during 8 80 Streets: Mountview! Students can bring bikes, scooters, toys, or balls to play in the car-free street. Parents and caregivers are invited to join the fun! Yard supervision will begin as usual at 8:30am.

We need volunteers from October 28 to 31! Sign up for a shift at tiny.cc/mountview.
