Bicycle Transportation Plan
What is the Bicycle Transportation Plan?
The Bicycle Transportation Plan aims to create an urban environment which is conducive to cycling.
Shifting Transportation Modes
The Bicycle Transportation Plan and the Transportation Master Plan provide direction to develop an integrated and sustainable transportation system in Edmonton. The Transportation Master Plan promotes healthy and active lifestyles to encourage a shift in transportation modes away from single occupant vehicles.
Providing appropriate infrastructure for cyclists supports year-round cycling and encourages people to choose cycling as a safe, healthy and efficient alternative to driving.
The City plans to install close to 500 kilometres of on-street cycling facilities within the next 10 to 20 years.
The Bicycle Transportation Plan, first established in 1992, was updated in 2009. The updating process included extensive public consultation, a number of workshops, open houses and focus groups about bicycle transportation in Edmonton, as well as a review of international best practices and an expansion of Edmonton’s city-wide bike routes.
Some highlights of the plan include the use of marked on-street bicycle lanes, expansion of bicycle racks to all transit buses, and an expanded bicycle parking program.
