Seventy per cent of Ontarians believe that cyclists need more bicycle lanes or paved shoulders, according to a survey slated to be released Monday.
The annual poll commissioned by Share the Road Cycling Coalition also found that a majority of Torontonians — 71 per cent — would like to see funding for active transportation included in Metrolinx’s $30 billion Big Move.
“It is critical that bicycling and walking are not forgotten in The Big Move, given the important role they play in the daily lives of citizens in Toronto and the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area,” Eleanor McMahon, founder and chief executive officer of the Share the Road Cycling Coalition, said in a news release.
