Jane’s Walk 5: Alternative to Broadway Subway – May 3, 4

This route could accommodate a ground level Light Rail Transit system at a lower cost and a more rapid construction program than a Broadway Subway. This bike tour is 7 kilometers long, and will cover the eastern half of the route.  Along the way, we will stop at important places and discuss the pros and cons of this alternative concept.

Our neighbourhood in Kensington-Cedar Cottage has emerged as a hot-bed of urban agriculture, and we will visit some of the sites around the area to take a look.
