Founded in 2008, the Kingston Coalition for Active Transportation (KCAT) is a registered not-for-profit organization dedicated to increasing active travel in Kingston and area. We are a diverse group of community members from a variety of ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds, including education, research, urban planning, health, and recreation.
We work collaboratively with partners to enhance opportunities for walking, wheeling, and using transit, primarily through education, advocacy, and policy. KCAT encourages the development and maintenance of environments that are conducive to AT, with attention to sidewalks, cycling routes, signage, and the transit system. We hope for Kingston to be safe, accessible, efficient, affordable, connected, attractive, and equitable for all ages and throughout the year.
KCAT is committed to promoting active transportation and improving the health and safety of our community. Equity is a guiding principle in our work, and we are always learning. We welcome a diversity of experiences and ideas. Through our work, we aim to create a more inclusive and vibrant community that supports active transportation for everyone. We believe that everyone should have access to safe and accessible options for walking, wheeling, and transit.
