This work is part of the City’s Council-approved Cycling Network Plan to connect existing cycling infrastructure and is aligned with the City’s goals through the TransformTO climate action strategy to increase trips taken by foot or bike to reduce the City’s impact on the environment.
Cycling is one of the fastest-growing transportation modes in Toronto. The City is working to make travel by bike safer and more inviting. Making it easier for people to choose to cycle, helps ease congestion on the streets and transit, creates a cleaner environment and promotes a healthier public. The City supports cycling by building and maintaining 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.
