Celebrate Tonight, More Work Tomorrow
Today is one for the history books! Toronto City Council just passed the largest package of cycling infrastructure in our city’s history: 40 km of bike lanes to be installed in a little over a month.
Toronto, this victory is yours!
Today, the City of Toronto announced specifics on where protected cycling infrastructure will be accelerated under the ActiveTO program. New protected cycling infrastructure will be built quickly, using interim materials, along corridors identified in the City of Toronto Cycling Network Plan for delivery this summer.

Bicycle Infrastructure in Our Near Future
Just before the end of the year we wrote an article about our highlights from 2019. If you haven’t read it, check it out now. While Cycle Toronto had some significant milestones, one thing we did not see was an improvement in new cycling infrastructure with only 3 km of on-street bike lanes installed.

2019 was a big year for cycling in Toronto, and bodes well for the next decade. We wanted to share our highlights with you as we head into the new year. Here they are in no particular order:

Last weekend, 8 80 Cities held a temporary Vision Zero pop-up at Danforth and Woodbine. The reimagined street included widened sidewalks, increased seating and a play area, a planter-protected bike lane, and slower car traffic. It was great to see families and children outside enjoying a small vibrant stretch of Danforth.
