GetTherePosterDuring each election cycle, Asheville on Bikes (AoB) hosts two candidate forums focused on the issues of Asheville’s transportation systems and needs.

AoB’s second candidate forum, held prior to the general election, is called Get There AVL. It will be hosted by New Mountain in downtown Asheville. The event is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 22nd from 6:30 to 9pm, so please save the date.

Read Their Take on Transportation

All current Asheville city council candidates have received an invitation and questionnaire from AoB. Candidate responses will be posted to AoB’s website in the order they are received. Each candidate was asked: 

  1. Tell us something about your transportation habits. How do you get around Asheville?
  2. What do you consider to be the most significant transportation advancement in Asheville and what impact does it have on our community?
  3. Please identify one way in which you’ve worked to make Asheville safer for pedestrians, transit users, and / or cyclists. What did you learn from this experience?
  4. What do you consider to be Asheville’s primary transportation challenge and how do you propose to fix it?
