Cycling in Vancouver
Cycling is one of the cleanest and most energy efficient forms of transportation, and the number of people choosing to cycle continues to grow, year after year.
Much of this growth is due to our support for green transportation initiatives to make cycling and walking more safe, convenient and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities. Expanding the bike route network is an important strategy in our effort to reduce traffic congestion to become more sustainable.
City cycling initiatives
- New and upgraded cycling routes: By expanding and upgrading our cycling network, we are increasing cycling comfort and encouraging more people to ride their bikes.
- Public bicycle system: We plan to launch a network of shared bicycles available for short-term use for a fee.
- More bicycle parking: We install bicycle racks and corrals on public property around Vancouver, as do businesses on their properties.
- Bike-friendly events: We encourage event planners to promote cycling and walking by providing bike valet parking and promoting public transit options at events.
