Toronto, like many large cities, has a problem with bike theft. It is a complicated and complex issue, with impacts that are only partially understood. We know that theis issue affects thousands of people, and costs millions of dollars, and discourages people from riding more often. In our efforts to create a cycling friendly city for all, we want to help take a bike out of bike theft - and we could use your help to do it.

We analyzed a year's worth of counts, and the numbers are staggering: nearly 1 million people were counted riding on the Bloor bike lanes last year! More people than ever are using Bloor to ride to work or school, visit local shops, or meet friends. Next step? Extending them west from Shaw St. to High Park Ave.
Let's get bike lanes on the Danforth between Broadview and Dawes! Bike counts from June 2018 indicate that the Danforth is primed for bike lanes. This is the east-end’s only route with the potential to provide a continuous connection from downtown across the Don Valley to Scarborough.
Toronto’s iconic Yonge St. has long been a key destination for anyone visiting or living here- but its design needs to catch up to the high volumes of people biking, walking, and taking transit. Transform Yonge would create a safe, beautiful, and vibrant main street.
