Effective today, Bike Calgary is adapting to changing preferences in active transportation, and rebranding itself as “Scooter Calgary”.
“We have always supported active transportation in every form, and with the data from last year around the overwhelming enthusiasm for scooters, we have recognized we need to change with the times,” explains Scooter Calgary president Gary Millard. “Thankfully, all the great work we have done on the multi-use pathways and network of downtown scooter tracks is still relevant to this growing mode of transportation.”
Scooter Calgary will continue to advocate with the City of Calgary for safe and effective infrastructure for all active transportation users. And yes, we still support cyclists, even as they become the marginal users of our wonderful network of scootering infrastructure.
Please consider volunteering for Scooter Calgary or donating. As we look through our finances on April 1st, we realized we need to do something to get the attention of this city’s residents! Happy April Fool’s Day!
