Right to Move is a non-profit organization that was started in the spring of 1997 by a group who believed bicycles are a form of transportation that should be available to all, regardless of gender, age, wealth or ethnicity.
Bicycles are a viable urban transportation option, one far more economical and more ecological than cars in moving people to where they need to be.
In order to make bicycling a more accessible transportation option, we:
- have a drop-in, do-it-yourself bicycle shop where members can fix their own bicycles with the help of volunteer mechanics
- hold hands-on workshops series on bicycle maintenance three times per year in english and French
- accept and collect bicycles destined for the landfill, fix them and donate them or sell them at low cost to those who would not otherwise be able to afford a bicycle
RTM is a membership-based organisation. A mere $20 per year gives you access to our drop-in shop.
RTM is a volunteer-driven organisation. We are always looking for new volunteers for our steering committee, to help fix bikes, to be mechanics and to do administrative work. Give us a call, come to the shop (to join and/or to add yourself to the members’ mailing list) and get involved, or send email to RTM/Lvl .
