Cycling on the Carrall St. Greenway

City projects to improve our cycling network

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
  • More equitable, by improving connections to underserved areas and populations

Guided by Transportation 2040, we will consult on and implement 5-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

2023 to 2027 Active Mobility Plan 

Our 2023 to 2027 Active Mobility Plan (AMP) outlines upcoming infrastructure projects to advance our active transportation network.

It supports city goals related to health, safety, equity, accessibility, affordability and complete communities. It also supports the Climate Emergency Action Plan target (CEAP) of two-thirds of all trips by active transportation and transit by 2030.

The AMP includes maps for major corridor projects and walking programs.
