Cycling Network Ten Year Plan

On June 9, 2016 Toronto City Council approved a Cycling Network Year Plan to Connect, Grow and Renew infrastructure for Toronto's cycling routes over the next ten years.

The Cycling Network Plan will serve as a comprehensive roadmap and workplan, outlining the City's planned investments in cycling infrastructure over 2016-2025.

The plan identifies opportunities for cycling infrastructure investments in every part of Toronto.  It includes recommendations for cycle tracks or bike lanes on fast, busy streets and recommendations for traffic calmed routes with cycling wayfinding on quiet streets.

The Cycling Network Plan also includes recommendations for new boulevard trails, adjacent to fast busy streets where cycling may be less comfortable in the roadway.  The Plan identified areas where tunnels or bridges may be studied to cross major barriers. 

Learn more about the Cycling Network Plan by reading the staff report to City Council.

Opportunities for new cycling infrastructure projects have been identified and accessed City-wide. On fast busy streets, dedicated bike lanes or cycle tracks which separate cycling traffic from motor vehicle traffic are recommended. Quiet street routes support wayfinding on local streets.  

Budget Scenario Maps

To understand how the level of investment in Toronto's Cycling budget will help build our City, five possible budget scenarios have been mapped.

As part of the development of a Cycling Network Plan, a draft map of proposed new routes has been created for consultation purposes.

Cycling Network Plan Draft Map

A Critical review of the existing cycling network, feasibility analysis and multi-faceted public consultation were used to develop the Cycling Network Plan Draft Map. Thank you to the 3,600+ individuals who sent us data using the Toronto Cycling App and the 10,500+ individuals who completed our Phase 1 Survey.

The Draft map was posted online, so that residents could vote digitally on which projects they think are priorities and drop pins to identify cycling network desire lines.  Thank you to the 7,000+ Torontonians who provided feedback to our digital draft map.
