aLIVe at Seward Park

Please join us for an exhibition that promises to re-energize how we think about our transportation system. On Saturday, August 22nd a Low Impact Vehicle exhibition (aLIVe) will be at Seward Park from 10am – 3:30pm.

The term “low impact” has a dual meaning describing both the impact of a vehicle on a pedestrian, as well as the environmental impact. The implementation of low impact vehicles would generate a huge range of public benefits, including increased mobility for transit and freight.

A bicycle is a low impact vehicle, but what else can we imagine? Artists, inventors and community members envision a new type of transportation system designed around the human body. Everything from poetry to prototypes will be on display!
