Tragedy on Avenue Road not an Anomaly

Last Wednesday, Miguel Joshua Escanan’s young life was taken while riding his bike on Avenue Road, metres beyond the end of ActiveTO bike lanes (and where a speedway begins). Avenue is not an anomaly; it is one of many six-lane highways cutting through Toronto that the City itself has identified as needing safety improvements.

Action Alert: Support 2021 cycling projects and ask for more!

The next slate of proposed 2021 cycling infrastructure will be voted on at the May 25 Infrastructure and Environment Committee (IEC) meeting. Combined, they make up just over nine kilometres of new bike lanes. Scarborough doesn’t have a single centimetre. The projects are useful connections, but not enough to meaningfully build out a safe cycling network across the city.

Keep ActiveTO on Lake Shore W, Support a Complete Street on Yonge, 2021 projects & more

Yesterday, the City released its agenda for the Infrastructure and Environment Committee (IEC). It shows what we can expect from both temporary ActiveTO projects and permanent cycling projects proposed for this year.

Read on about what's proposed and what we recommend for:

This week, the City of Toronto unveiled its final recommendations for the design for the future of downtown Yonge Street from College Street to Queen Street. This project has been years in the making, and we are encouraged by the recommended vision for downtown Yonge.
