HUBS’ name is Changing: Welcome to the CORE AT NETWORKS PROJECT!


Our HUBS project is changing. But don’t worry- it’s just a name change! 

Welcome to the Core AT Networks Project. “AT” as in active transportation. Cycling Nova Scotia has chosen the name change to better align with Goal 9(b) of Nova Scotia’s Bill 57, the Environmental Goals and Climate Change Reduction Act, an ambitious and important goal to complete core active transportation networks that are accessible for all ages and all abilities in 65% of the Province’s communities by 2030 (exciting, right?!). Our Core AT Networks project is helping many municipalities across the province reach that exact goal by developing active transportation network plans that contribute to a more equitable, healthy, and sustainable future for residents.

For the Core AT Project, Cycling Nova Scotia’s Active Transportation Planner works with communities to design a core network of AT routes, engages with the public to determine their vision for AT in the community, connects the Provincial Blue Route into their community, and designs a concept plan for their priority route(s). We are thrilled to be working with the municipalities listed below this year to further develop their active transportation networks and improve their options for safe movement in their communities:

  • New Glasgow
  • Annapolis Royal
  • Middleton
  • Wagmatcook First Nation
  • Municipality of West Hants (Windsor)
  • Municipality of Victoria County (Baddeck)
