ADVOCACY IN WARD 18
Davenport has one of the highest percentages of commuter cyclists in Toronto, but doesn't have enough cycling infrastructure. Come join us in advocating for more bike lanes!
Over 2014-17 we collected local cyclist input and participated in consultations with city staff, presented to them priorities, and shared local knowledge.
We are advocating to introduce bicycle lanes on Bloor St as EW route; Dovercourt Rd, Lansdowne Ave and West Toronto Railpath as NS routes, as well as additional minor street routes of lower utility.
Ward 18 is in badly need of additional EW connectivity; Access to major commercial corridors (College, Dundas, Queen); Strategies to provide bike lanes on streetcar routes w/o slowing transit; And infrastructure on Dufferin St btw College and Bloor – destinations (Dufferin Mall, Dufferin Grove park, 2 schools) w/o good access); Gladstone Ave can be interim solution.
Saturday, June 3, 2017 --> 5th Annual Custard Tart Ride, meet at 11am at Brazil Bakery (1556 Dundas St W). RSVP here
