NEWS: Should Torontonians be Paid to Bike to Work?

I highlighted this story a few days ago, and it’s good to see Torontoist picking up on it.

France is getting serious about bicycle commuting. Last week, the French government kicked off a six-month pilot project that involves paying people 25 Euro cents per kilometre to bike to work. Twenty French employers, with a collective 10,000 employees, have volunteered to participate.  At the end of 2014, the government will evaluate how many people took up bike commuting, what type of transportation these converts gave up in favour of cycling, and what kinds of accommodations employers made for bike commuters. If all has gone well, the scheme may be renewed and expanded for 2015.

NEWS: Toronto’s cycling plan: One pedal forward, one back

Less than 10 kilometres.

That’s the total length of new bike lanes that were planned to be painted in 2014. But with an election less than five months away and the year half over, they have yet to be approved.

Part of that plan is adding lanes to Harbord St. and Hoskin Ave. and approving a pilot project for Richmond and Adelaide Sts. Together those new lanes, totaling nearly seven kilometres, are the most action downtown lanes have seen in the past four years. The proposal is set to go before council June 10.

If you’re a cyclist, there is not much to cheer about.

INFRASTRUCTURE: Freshly re-painted bikelanes on Gerrard East

Gerrard Street East gets some freshly re-painted bikelanes!

Anyone else annoyed at how most bikelanes in this city stop before intersections?   Intersections are the VERY places where most car-bike collisions happen.  We need MORE bikelanes there, not LESS.
