Toronto's Cycling Network Survey

Posted on May 5, 2015

Transportation Services is developing a new 10-year plan for expanding and improving the City’s cycling network.

The 10-year plan will build on the City’s existing 856 km bikeway network. Staff are currently identifying potential bikeway projects through several lenses, including:
• Re-evaluating un-built projects from the 2001 Bike Plan;
• Incorporating the Bikeway Trails Plan approved by Council in 2012;
• Identifying which streets cyclists are currently using;
• Evaluating route suggestions submitted by cycling groups and cyclists;
• Reviewing planning studies that have recommended cycling infrastructure;
• Opportunities in the City’s 10-Year Capital Plan.

Please fill out this survey to help City Staff evaluate proposed bikeway projects and to identify other opportunities.

A draft proposed network will be presented to the public for comment during the second consultation phase, to be launched in mid-June, during Bike Month.

Public consultation events will be held in the City’s four districts to invite input on the draft.

The draft network will also be presented in an on-line survey which will allow the public to view the proposed bikeway projects and provide detailed comments and suggestions.

The eight criteria will measure how effective a route would be in terms of:
• Connecting existing routes;
• Extending coverage to new areas of the city;
• Crossing barriers;
• Responding to population and employment density;
• Meeting current cycling demand;
• Recognizing potential future cycling demand;
• Improving road safety; and
• Servicing key trip generators.

The draft network will be revised in response to the feedback received during the Phase 1 and Phase 2 consultation events with a goal of presenting a recommended 10-Year Cycling Network Plan to Council in Fall 2015.
