#BuildTheGrid: Cycle Toronto's 2018 Municipal Election Campaign


The next municipal election is on Monday, October 22, 2018, when Torontonians will cast their votes for a mayor and city councillors who will shape the direction of our city over the next four years.


With a grid of safe streets, Toronto would be a more active and healthy city.

Pledge to ask your candidates if they will make our streets safer for people on bikes. Ask your mayoral and council candidates to #BuildTheGrid.


Sign the pledge

Pledges: 3168


Have these 3 questions ready for each mayoral and city council candidate you meet:


  1. Will you be a champion for building safe connected bike routes in my neighbourhood?

  2. Will you support building protected bike lanes on main streets? (use local examples like Bloor, Danforth, Yonge, etc.)

  3. Do you support accelerating the City’s 10-Year Cycling Network Plan to be completed in the next four years, instead of by 2026?


Let's work together to call on every council and mayoral candidate to champion solutions to the road safety crisis we are facing in our city.


Help Toronto get there.

Show your support.



#BuildTheVisionTO: Safe and Active Streets for All

This election, we're working in partnership with The Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT), 8 80 Cities, Friends and Families for Safe Streets, and Walk Toronto to promote road safety as an election issue. In June, we launched #BuildTheVisionTO: Safe and Active Streets for All, a set of 15 municipal election priorities for building streets where people of all ages and abilities can get around actively, sustainably and safely.

A survey is being distributed to all of Toronto’s mayoral and city council candidates to gauge their support for the 15 priority actions within seven themes. These priorities will improve road safety, increase physical activity, and build safe and active streets for all ages and abilities. Candidate responses will be published on the TCAT website one month ahead of the municipal election on October 22, 2018.
