A baseline network of safer, continuous, and connected active transportation routes, free of gaps and danger zones, maintained appropriately, linking common Saskatoon destinations.
Moving around your community should be safe for everyone
For years, Saskatoon has struggled to make active travel a truly welcoming option for its physical mobility users. Many people feel unsafe when navigating the city without a vehicle, and with the deaths of Natasha Fox and Darin Kinniewess in 2023, their sense of vulnerability seems justified.
SafeConnect wants everyone to get safely to the places where they live, work, or play no matter what method of travel they use.
The time for action is now!
The City of Saskatoon transportation department has extensive, and laudable, plans for creating corridors throughout the city that are designed to accommodate all ages and abilities and connect major destinations. However, many of these projects will require significant funding, take years to complete, and still lack detailed features to make them useful for both vehicles and physical mobility users.
The implementation of these plans requires our energy and input.
We’re here to provide ideas, today
SafeConnect seeks to establish a baseline network of safer, continuous, and connected active transportation routes, free of gaps and danger zones, maintained appropriately, linking common Saskatoon destinations.
We aim to work collaboratively with our City Administration to address shortcomings in the current active transportation network, educate all stakeholders on the issues, and develop potential solutions that can be rapidly implemented ahead of, as well as alongside scheduled projects.
There should be no more delays or excuses when it comes to safer infrastructure.
Everyone gets peace on the roads when everyone has a piece of the roads.
We are the community.
SafeConnect is a Saskatoon Cycles advocacy initiative, representing a growing coalition of clubs, organizations, advocacy groups, businesses, and individuals committed to a safer and more welcoming active transportation network. We are your neighbours and friends, working together to make smarter, sustainable transportation options a reality.
