URGENT Call for Action: Bike Lanes on John Street! Send the City an email before Thursday, July 1
Want more bike lanes in the downtown core? Wish the St George/Beverly Lane connected to a safe route for travels further south than Queen? Then send the city an email TODAY (or at least before Thursday)!!!
“The longest uninterrupted north-south bike lane in central Toronto is ‘Route 35‘, which travels along Beverly, St George & Poplar Plains all the way from St Clair down to Queen Street. At Queen it comes to a dead-end, feeding into a black hole of car-priority streets with no bike infrastructure anywhere nearby. Ten years ago, City Council approved the Toronto Bike Plan, which includes north-south bike lanes on Spadina & Peter, and physically separated bike lanes on Richmond & Adelaide. Ten years later, including seven years under Mayor Miller, we still have no bike lanes in that area. Now, to make things worse, the City is planning to re-design John Street and it looks like bike safety is not part of the equation”
