Cycling is one of the fastest growing transportation modes in Toronto. The City is working to make travel by bike safer and more inviting, which helps ease congestion on streets and transit, creates a cleaner environment, and promotes physical activity. The City supports cycling by building and maintaining infrastructure such as bike lanes and multi-use trails, installing bike parking facilities, distributing bike network maps, and carrying out other campaigns and projects to promote cycling confidence and safe road use behaviour.
Growing, expanding and enhancing the cycling network also contributes to the City’s Vision Zero Road Safety goals, by providing a safe and dedicated space for people cycling, and thus protecting vulnerable road users.
