King Street Pilot Study Survey

Posted on February 22, 2017

The City of Toronto invites you to take the inline survey for the King Street Pilot Study!

The King Street Pilot Study is about testing out how to redesign King Street to achieve three broad city-building objectives: moving people on transit more efficiently, improving placemaking and the public realm, and supporting business and economic prosperity.

In this online survey, the City wants to hear your feedback about three key aspects of the pilot being explored in this phase of work:

1. How should we evaluate success of the pilot project?
2. What is your preference of three different block design options being considered?
3. Where along King Street should we undertake the pilot?

Please click on the link to the survey below, it should take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete:
