Last week, the city began construction on Bloor Street’s first set of bike lanes, between Avenue Road and Shaw Street. The idea has been in the works for 40 years (yes, really)—but, even now, the lanes may not be here to stay. City staff are studying the results of the new traffic pattern. They’ll be reporting back in the third quarter of 2017, at which point city councillors will have an opportunity to decide whether or not the project is a success. In the meantime, people on Bloor Street are already beginning to form their own opinions. We spoke with cyclists and non-cyclists about whether or not these new lines on the asphalt are a good thing.
