Bike Infrastructure in the Toronto 2009 Operating Budget

You may have seen the news that Toronto’s proposed 2009 budget means things like a 4% increase in property taxes, more money for social programs and keeping TTC fares frozen at current levels.

If you’re like me, then all of the above is interesting, but you’re also curious about how cycling infrastructure is addressed in the proposed $8.6 billion budget.

Here’s what the press release says:

  • Open 70km of additional bike lanes; increase the number of bike stations and bicycle lockers ($0.210M gross, $0 net)

This is in keeping with the overall plan to finish the BikePlan by 2012… you can see the 2008 progress of the BikePlan in this PDF from the Toronto Cycling Advisory Committee.
