UNDERSTANDING route types
Bike Lanes, Cycle Tracks, Multi-Use Trails and Shared Roadways all connect together to form our Cycling Network. Which type of route should be put on a street depends on how busy the street is, and how fast the traffic is.
FAST, BUSY STREETS
If a street has a lot of motor vehicles and this traffic is moving quickly, this will make most cyclists feel unsafe. For these types of streets a dedicated cycling facility such as a bicycle lane, buffered bicycle lane or Cycle Track can help keep cyclist and motor vehicle traffic separate.
If a street is quiet, with slow moving motor vehicle traffic, then we don't have to make space for a dedicated cycling facility. Traffic calming, wayfinding signage and sharrows can help build Bicycle Boulevards which are comfortable for every type of cyclist.
Get Involved! We want you to help us design the plan by completing surveys and participating in public events
