Toronto Adds Zero Kilometres of Bike Lanes in 2012

On October 2, 2012, Toronto City Council voted 24-19 to remove the Jarvis Street bike lanes.  By the end of 2012, the City will have fewer kilometres of on-street bike lanes than it did at the end of 2009. Despite increased ridership, City Hall has been reducing safe on-street cycling infrastructure and dismantling the bike lane network. The City is not keeping pace with demand for safe, accessible on-street bike lanes. 

At the same time, cities around the world are embracing cycling as a smart, efficient and healthy mode of transportation, and are building networks of safe cycling infrastructure. The City of Chicago, for example, is building over 54 kilometres of bike lanes in 2012 as part of an ambitious ‘Streets for Cycling’ plan that will improve on cycling facilities and add roughly 1050 kilometres of bike lanes by 2020.
