Anyone who has biked College St at rush hour knows it’s packed with bikes… but last fall Cycle Toronto went out and counted bikes AND cars, and found that bikes make up 46% of westbound vehicle traffic at College and Spadina!!
For the past few years, we’ve gone out in late September and counted cars and bikes on College St. What we’ve repeatedly found is that the College St bike lanes, like bicycle lanes across the city, are a more efficient way to move people.
While only 19% of the road is reserved for bikes, College St moves nearly as many bikes as it does cars. Bike lanes get Toronto moving. Watch the gif and and if you don’t believe us, review the data and do the count for yourself.
