The Launch of Metronauts

I’m proud to spread the word about the launch of Metronauts, a community that will engage and inform in the transportation planning for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area. Based on the spirit of TransitCamp (itself based on the spirit of BarCamp), Metronauts is a combination of face to face collaboration events and an online space where people from all over the community can help inform the regional transit plan being assembled by Metrolinx, the arms-length government agency.

This initiative is being spearheaded by Mark Kuznicki but he has brought together a bunch of people to help contribute in a variety of ways, myself included. I have a keen interest in urban design and transportation, not to mention collective wisdom, so helping out where I can on this project was a no-brainer.

I’ll have some more posts as the first event shapes up for April 5th, but keep on eye on the Metronauts site for the latest and greatest news. The Toronto Star has already published an article about the upcoming event and hopefully there will be a lot more press in the future!
