Eglinton Avenue Transit City LRT Plans have a Bikelane Option

Back in May I posted about the proposed plans (PDF) for the Sheppard Ave. LRT (part of TransitCity) and how they included bikelanes:


Now it’s time for the Eglinton Avenue LRT to be discussed:

From the Project FAQs (PDF File):

Q14) Will there be bike lanes on any portion of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT route?

Bike lanes will be considered for inclusion along or adjacent to the entire route. In many instances, bicycle routes currently exist parallel to Eglinton Avenue, and could potentially serve as the bicycle path along the corridor.

We Want Your Input
We are having five Open Houses to explain the project, to show you what we hope to achieve, to get your comments, and to answer any questions you may have. Please drop in any time between 6:30pm and 9:00pm at any of the Open Houses. We look forward to meeting you there.

These Open Houses are perfect opportunities to let City Staff and Politicians know that along with transit, bikelanes are cheap and easy infrastructure upgrades that can help the city meet environmental objectives.

I’ll be adding these Open Houses to the BikingToronto Events Page, so you can always check there for them too.
