New report on cycling potential in the Toronto region garners attention

Last week, Ryerson University, in collaboration with TCAT, released a new report that has garnered regional attention by revealing that the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) could shift over 4 million trips a day, or one third of all trips, from motor vehicle to bicycle. Some other key findings:

The report has received great media pick-up (e.g. Metro Morning, CBC News, Toronto Star, Radio Canada International, The Morning Edition K-W) and has inspired others to conduct similar analyses outside the GTHA. The Tri-Cities Transport Action Group (TriTAG) found that 35% of trips in the Region of Waterloo fit the criteria to be considered cyclable.

The study is available for download from Ryerson’s website or TCAT’s website.
