Have You Tried the New Jarvis? Tell Us About It!

We’ve put out a call on twitter for stories of the new Jarvis during rush hour this morning… and would like to extend the invitation here too. Did you try out the new Jarvis bikelanes this morning?  Did you like them?  Were cars still moving along just fine? I tried them out at approx. 8:20 […]

The Jarvis Bikelanes are Painted!

Bike Unionist Busted for Biking down the Middle of Jarvis

What a tabloid-esque headline for a biking story!

I saw this on my way downtown this morning, and the Star has picked up on it too.  The city has made Jarvis into a 2-lanes-each-way street, striping off the middle lane with yellow lines in preparation for turning it into a bikelaned street.  It’s good to see drivers abiding by the yellow lines.  It’s […]

Jarvis Street, Before the Bikelanes

The process for installing bikelanes on Jarvis started on Friday, and not only those of us who like to bike Toronto are excited.  People who live in the area are looking forward to having the street become a little more people-friendly.  The new bikelanes will create a small “buffer” of road space between moving car […]
