Ontario’s new Cycling Strategy: bold vision applauded; bold action still required

Toronto Centre for Active Transportation (TCAT), Cycle Toronto and the Toronto Cycling Think and Do Tank applaud the Aug 30th release by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) of #CycleON, Ontario’s Cycling Strategy.

The Cycling Strategy is a 20-year vision that outlines actions to promote cycling across Ontario as a legitimate and practical mode of transportation. TCAT, Cycle Toronto and the Toronto Cycling Think and Do Tank were invited members of the Cycling Strategy Working Group formed by Minister of Transportation Glen Murray to provide advice and direction on the development of the first bicycle policy update in Ontario since 1992.

While we’re thrilled to see such a bold vision in place, we need equally bold action to carry us there. TCAT, Cycle Toronto and the Toronto Cycling Think and Do Tank identified four initial priorities to translate policy into action.
