Bloor Street bike lanes, here to stay, yea!

 

 

Yo he just below Bloor St, today, needs bike lanes too.

 

 

The Bloor Street bike lanes, Toronto’s most-intensely studied transportation project, will be a permanent fixture on the roadway after council voted strongly in favour of keeping them following a daylong debate.

Bloor bike lane report highlights changes for cyclists, drivers, businesses

City staff recommended keeping the lanes in place following a one-year pilot project that measured its affects on cyclists, motorists, pedestrians and local businesses. It found:

On average, 5,220 cyclists use the lanes every weekday.

The commute for drivers is two minutes slower during the morning rush hour, and four minutes slower in the afternoon.

There was a 44 per cent reduction in the total number of conflicts between all road users.
