#BuildTheGrid: Cycle Toronto's 2018 Municipal Election Campaign


On October 22, 2018, we will elect Toronto's Mayor and councillors, who make crucial decisions affecting transportation in our city - including how we design our streets. 

What did candidates have to say about building a better cycling city? Click the map to find out.


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


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 worked 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. 

On October 18, we released the results of our survey: #BuildTheVisionTO: Safe and Active Streets for All. Read the press release.

The survey included 15 questions, each tied to a municipal election priority for building streets where people of all ages and abilities can get around actively, sustainably and safely.

Get a snapshot of the 15 priorities.

Cycle Toronto is a strictly non-partisan organization that supports policies for safer streets, and not any particular party or candidate.
