More media coverage of the Bloor bike lane pilot. It’ll be interesting to see if the media EVER change how they report things… like “traffic” is always car traffic, not all the people using and moving and shopping on the street.
Great photo of Yvonne Bambrick too!
Cycling advocates are hopeful based on the success of separated Adelaide and Richmond Sts., extended after studies showed a boom in cyclist use without slowing traffic.
“Bloor and Danforth have been long sought after by the cycling community because they form a direct, noncircuitous route without streetcar tracks making it ideal for high quality cycling infrastructure,” said Cycle Toronto executive director Jared Kolb.
“Local support among residents and business is strong through the proposed Bloor pilot study area. Success here will help act as proof of concept and spur demand to unlock bike lanes elsewhere.”
