Encouraging more people in Toronto to cycle more often, especially for utilitarian reasons, will improve the health and the liveability of our City. The Toronto Bike Plan (TBP) has been prepared in response to this general principle. It will guide the City in the development and implementation of new programs and facilities to encourage people to cycle, and to reduce their dependence on the automobile. It is a Plan based on extensive public and staff consultation, and is designed to be flexible so it can evolve over time as it is implemented.

The Toronto Bike Plan is envisioned as a tenyear initiative. It will complement other planning efforts in the City, including the review of the City’s Official Plan and the redevelopment of Toronto’s waterfront.

The TBP establishes a vision for cycling. It sets out integrated principles, objectives and recommendations regarding safety, education and promotional programs as well as cycling related infrastructure, including a comprehensive bikeway network.
