In 2022, the City upgraded the 1.5 kilometre multi-use trail (MUT) for active transportation on the east side of Kipling Avenue, between Steeles Avenue West and Mount Olive Drive. These upgrades were components of a road reconstruction to bring the road, sidewalk and MUT to a state of good repair.

A multi-use trail is shown in the boulevard of Kipling Avenue, with a sidewalk on one side and protective barriers on the other.

What does the Kipling MUT mean for you?

  • Improved safety for people walking, cycling and driving with separated facilities
  • Increased cycling connectivity to existing multi-use trail on the west side of Kipling Avenue from Mount Olive Drive to Finch Avenue West
  • Improved urban design and streetscape appearance
  • Traffic signal upgrades at all Kipling Avenue signalized intersections, including bicycle signals, within project limits excluding Steeles Avenue West intersection
  • No changes to TTC bus routes and stop locations, or motor vehicle travel lanes, resulting from trail upgrades
  • No changes to Wheel-Trans, emergency services or other City services
  • Enhanced design for better safety and accessibility at east side TTC bus stop locations along Kipling Avenue within the project area

The multi-use trail was upgraded on the east side of Kipling Avenue between Steeles Avenue West and Mount Olive Drive.

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.
