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.


Sheppard Avenue: Toronto's next best bikeway?

We launched the Connect Sheppard campaign in June to advocate for the beginning of a network of connected, protected bike lanes on major roads in North York. Now is the first chance to move this project forward. The City is proposing big improvements for Sheppard Avenue from just east of Yonge Street to Leslie Street as well as Willowdale Avenue.

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.
