Toronto for Everyone panel: The History & Future of Bike Lanes on Bloor

Photo Credit: Martin Reis

The way Torontonians travel has increasingly shifted toward transit, walking and biking. As a reflection of this and after decades of advocacy, a bike lane pilot was installed along Bloor from Shaw St to Avenue Rd in August 2016. The pilot phase will last a year, and is one of the most heavily scrutinized and studied pieces of cycling infrastructure to date. On Feb 24th @ 5:30 p.m. as part of the Toronto for Everyone Community Town Hall planned at Honest Ed’s, Cycle Toronto’s Jared Kolb and a panel of guests including Councillor Joe Cressy (Ward 20), Nancy Smith Lea (TCAT), Albert Koehl (Bells on Bloor), and Jacquelyn Hayward Gulati (Toronto Transportation Services) will host a lively discussion on the longest running cycling campaign in our city’s history. We’ll talk about what it took for the vision of bike lanes on Bloor to become a reality, how the pilot is being measured for success, and the future of Bloor St.
