Draft Bikeway Design Guide: our comments & concerns

new bikes lanes on Grenoble Drive in Flemingdon Park

What is the Draft Bikeway Design Guide?

Ever been angered by cars parking in the bike lane you're riding in? Ever noticed how many different types of bike lanes exist in Toronto? Ever wished that Toronto bike lanes felt safer? Good news: Toronto is developing a new standard for how it develops and delivers cycling infrastructure across the City. The Bikeway Design Guide is in draft form and we were invited to participate in several stakeholder consultations.

Our comments and concerns

We're thrilled to see the Bikeway Design Guide moving forward. Our Advocacy Committee and Staff continuously researches international best practices and believe Toronto needs to design for All Ages and Abilities. The Draft Guide starts that process but there are more improvements needed. The Draft Guide is not yet posted on the City's website but we've shared our general comments to City staff here
