Shared Streets and Mobility Lanes

Shared Streets and Mobility Lanes will open again this spring, for people who walk, bike and drive, regardless of how they choose to move around our city!

The list of locations will include a core set of routes brought back from 2020, with some routes being shifted to other areas of the city. The locations will be adjusted based on observations from last year, and upcoming engagement with select community stakeholders.

Implementation of Shared Streets and Mobility Lanes will begin in April 2021.

Walking & Cycling in Winter

In Your Car

  • Watch for no right on red signs
  • Don't stop on the green paint
  • Shoulder check and look both ways
  • Yield to cyclists when turning across the bike lanes

On Your Bike

  • Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and at bus stops
  • Watch out for new signs indicating how to safely turn at intersections
  • Not sure how to navigate the bike routes? Dismount onto the sidewalk and observe what others are doing

On Your Feet

  • Watch for turning vehicles entering and exiting accessways 
  • When crossing the bike lane to get to a parked vehicle, yield to people on bikes

Be Aware and Take Care

Green stripes and white dashed paint on the roadway mark areas where drivers and cyclists may cross paths. Watch out for each other. 

Travelling slower along the Bike Routes will give you time to see and respond to all the new features. 

Know what's happening and plan your commute.
