To be frank, this is ridiculous. Who believes that a WheelTrans bus can’t park OVER a curb that rises, at most, 4 inches off the ground?
So… is this the start of the dismantling of our brand new Cycle Tracks? Anyone and everyone can just say “Um, I need a WheelTrans bus to park there, so please remove a bunch of that bikelane“?
Cyclists in Toronto are up in arms after one of the concrete dividers that separates the Wellesley Street cycle tracks from vehicles was removed earlier this week.
“We went out and checked it out and 20 metres of cycle track were just gone. It was quite alarming,” said Cycle Toronto director Jared Kolb.
Kolb said the portion of the lane had been on the city’s radar after residents at 24 Wellesley St. complained it was interfering with Wheel-Trans access.
