The bike lanes on Jarvis were installed in July 2010 at a cost of $86,000.
City council voted on July 13, 2011 to get rid of the lanes but was met with huge protests. The lanes were a subject of heated debate at council, with protesters holding “ride-ins” along the busy corridor.
According to a city report released in June 2011, the number of daily cyclists on Jarvis rose from 290 to 890, while the number of motorists has remained constant at 13,000.
