Cycling for all ages and abilities
We are building and expanding Vancouver's cycling network with low-stress, high quality routes that are:
- Safe and comfortable—regardless of your age and ability
- Convenient, connecting you to destinations such as schools, community centres, transit stations, and shopping and employment areas
Guided by Transportation 2040, we will consult on and implement five-year plans that prioritize:
- Creating routes with the highest existing or potential demand
- Closing critical gaps and making spot improvements
- Making high collision areas safer
- Connecting key destinations
