2020 ActiveTO Permanent, 100 km of New Bikeways in Three Years

We did it! Yesterday was a big day for cycling at City Hall! Cycle Toronto is only able to push for these wins with the help of our supporters, so thank you to all of our volunteers, members, donors, supporters, petition signers, Councillor champions, City staff, and everyone who made this happen!

The impact of these changes to our city’s streets cannot be overstated. Here’s an overview of what happened and what’s next.


Destination Danforth: The Final Push

This is it. After years of advocacy and study, and more than a year of piloting the complete street on Danforth Avenue, Toronto City Council will make a final vote on whether Destination Danforth, along with the other ActiveTO bike lanes, should be made permanent on Wednesday, December 15. 

City Council will also consider a future cycling plan that would see bike lanes installed on the rest of Danforth and continue along Kingston Road all the way to Eglinton Avenue within the next three years.

ACTION: Big votes on ActiveTO, 2022-2024 bikeways, and more

This could be the reality for cycling across much more of Toronto with your support.


City Council’s final Infrastructure and Environment Committee (IEC) meeting of the year is on December 2, and the agenda includes hundreds of pages of City staff recommendations related to cycling under three broad categories. 

Kingston Road Should Have Protected Bike Lanes: Hear from the community

We’ve already introduced you to our Connect Yonge, Thorncliffe Park and Flemingdon Park, and Scarborough campaigns, now we’re pleased to introduce you to Connect Kingston; the bridge between Danforth Avenue and Eglinton Avenue in Scarborough. Hear from community champions on what effect protected bike lanes on Kingston Road will have.

Move365 Connect is here

In recent years, we have focused on building out the spine of our cycling network to bring you bike lanes on three major roads: Bloor Street, Danforth Avenue, and Yonge Street. After years of tireless work with countless people and organizations, as of last week, bike lanes have been installed on all three of these roads! Politicians, businesses, and residents alike have all begun to see that bike lanes help things work better for everyone on our streets.

And yet, vast parts of our city do not have safe places to ride.
