Following the input of over 4,000 residents through the city’s Strategic Plan and Cycling and Trails Master Plan, this project includes the installation of a continuous and protected cycling network that connects adjacent neighbourhoods to the downtown. Just like the ION LRT significantly reshaped the downtown, this project will transform how people move around by making it safe, comfortable, and convenient for people of all ages and abilities to bike. Cycling has been shown to generate economic activity for small businesses, can assist with physical distancing for transportation needs during the pandemic, and reduce carbon emissions. The Downtown Cycling Grid connects to popular trails like the Iron Horse Trail, Spur Line Trail, and the Great Trail, creating a new way for people to access all that downtown has to offer.
