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. 

Are you joining in for #BikeFridays?

On March 16th, once vibrant stretches of business on Yonge Street shuttered as the pandemic became fully realized on Toronto’s streets. In the following months recovery began but how we interact with our community has changed; that’s why we’re launching a new effort to highlight the fantastic independent and small businesses on Yonge St in the Midtown neighbourhood: #BikesLoveYonge.

Eglinton Bike Lane and Midtown Yonge Updates

New, safe, bicycle infrastructure isn’t being limited to just the downtown core. There are some significant and interesting projects happening north of Bloor that could allow people to choose the best transportation for themselves.

Eglinton Avenue Bike Lanes

Eglinton Avenue is currently in the process of being reinvented as a complete street and bike infrastructure is part of the conversation.

Downtown Yonge - Change is Coming (Update)

 

Cycle Toronto has been advocating for bike lanes on Yonge Street for many years and now we have the opportunity to see a bold, car-free vision for downtown Yonge St. The City has been studying four potential options for the reconstruction of Yonge from Queen to College. We need your help to ensure cycling safety and well-designed shared space between people walking, rolling, and biking is a priority in the plans on Yonge to help fill large gaps in the City’s cycling network.
