Comment on the Cycling Network Plan Draft Map

The City of Toronto is developing a new 10-year plan for growing, connecting and renewing Toronto's cycling network.  Help us plan where in the city we should invest in cycle tracks, bike lanes, shared roadway routes and trails.

As part of Phase 2 consultations, 
we invite you to comment on the Draft Map

About the Draft Map
The City has undertaken analysis to identify the proposed routes on the draft 10-year cycling network map. To learn more about some of the safety, coverage, connectivity and extensive analysis that was applied to develop this map, visit the "Studying Toronto" section of our project website.

Public Consultation inputs have also been used to help choose routes on this draft map. Thank you to the 3,600+ individuals who have been sending us data using the Toronto Cycling App and the 10,500+ individuals who completed our Phase 1 Survey.  Read a summary of the outcomes from our Phase 1 Public Consultation on the project website.

The draft map for this second phase of the Cycling Network Plan consultations does not prescribe detailed designs. For the purposes of getting the conversation started, streets have simply been identified as proposed routes on "Quiet Streets," "Fast Busy Streets" or "Proposed Major Corridor Studies."

Some major corridors have been identified as candidates for opportunities to create City-wide cycling connections. On these major corridors (Yonge Street, Bloor Street, Danforth Avenue, Kingston Road, Midland Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard in Etobicoke) it is recognized that to achieve any cycling network link, a Major Corridor Study would be needed to properly assess traffic impacts and work with all interested stakeholders.

Learn more about the different types of cycling routes on our Planning the Network web page

Next Steps

Public Consultations will include drop-in events in each of four City districts, moving conversations with City staff  and follow-up meetings with stakeholder associations.  Information from each phase will assist staff in developing a report to City Council on the proposed Cycling Network projects to be implemented over the next 10 years.

Once the overall Plan is approved by Council, we will further engage with local residents and business on a project-by-project basis, as part of the detailed design process prior to installation of each route.

For now, we invite you to comment on the Draft Map
