College Street Cycling Survey – Call for Participants

TCAT is working with the City of Toronto to evaluate cycling conditions on College Street before and after the installation of a new bicycle pavement marking application – and we need your help.

What will I need to do? By Apr 30th, complete an online survey about your experience cycling on College St between Lansdowne Ave and Manning Ave on one day in April and one day in June.

When is the survey happening? Part 1: April 19th to May 3rd, 2010; Part 2: June 14th to 18th, 2010

Who can participate? Cyclists who ride along College St. during rush hour, for at least a couple blocks between Lansdowne Ave and Manning Ave. Rush hour is from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 to 6:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. All participants must be 18 years of age or older.

How can I sign up? Send an email to to sign up. For all emails, please include "College Street Survey" in the subject line and indicate: your name, preferred email address for correspondence, and what section of College Street you cycle on (e.g. Brock Ave to Clinton St).

The City of Toronto will not be responsible for any injury or damage related to the completion of the survey form.

Information will be collected in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Personal information is collected under the authority of the City of Toronto Act, 2006, s. 136(c) and By-law 730-2001. The information is used to evaluate the effect bicycle infrastructure changes on College Street have on your report of cycling conditions. Questions about this collection can be directed to the Manager, Cycling Infrastructure & Programs at the 22nd Floor, East Tower, City Hall, 100 Queen Street West, Toronto, M5H 2N2 or at 416-392-9065.

Each completed survey and participant number will be shared with the Toronto Coalition for Active Transportation (TCAT), absent of any other personal information, including name and email. Email addresses are collected solely for the purpose of communicating with participants about the survey project and will not be shared with other City of Toronto Divisions.
