There are a number of major cycling infrastructure projects already underway.
toronto's trails plan
Following public consultation and a feasibility assessment, on June 6, 2012 Toronto City Council approved Toronto's Trails Plan. Thirty two trail projects are included in the plan, to expand Toronto's existing network of trails. Twelve new trail construction projects, and four trail feasibility studies are currently being undertaken as short term priorities. Learn more
- The West Toronto Railpath project will extend the existing trail, to provide a critical connection from Toronto's busy west-end into the core.
- The East Don Trail will bring Toronto together, by connecting existing trail networks in the Western Don Valley and Taylor Creek with the Gatineau Hydro Corridor.
RICHMOND AND ADELAIDE CYCLE TRACKS
In 2014 the City installed Cycle Tracks on Richmond St., Adelaide St. and Simcoe St. These separated bike lanes are "pilot projects" for demonstration, testing, and evaluation, before a decision is made on whether they should be made permanent (including possible upgrades). Learn more

The Toronto rapid transit projects are part of The Big Move, a 25-year, $50 billion plan that will transform regional transportation across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Region. The Government of Ontario has committed $8.4 billion in support of new transit for Toronto. These projects are currently being designed to include bicycle lanes.
- The Eglinton Crosstown LRT will add new transit from Mount Dennis (Weston Road) to Kennedy Station
- The Sheppard East LRT will add new transit along Sheppard Avenue from Don Mills subway station to east of Morningside Avenue
- The Finch West LRT will add new transit along Finch Avenue from the planned Finch West subway station at Keele Street to Humber College
