The sign family design was developed to look like other wayfinding signs currently used by the City of Edmonton. The on-street bike routes can be identified by the green tab or strip. The off-street bike routes (such as shared pathways) have a red tab or strip. The sign family includes:
- Fingerboards for major junctions with multiple choice points
- Decision signs that indicate bends or jogs in a bike route
- Sign blades/tabs/overhead signs to reinforce to cyclists and drivers that they are on a bike route
Destination-Decision Fingerboards are placed at major junctions with multiple choices (usually district connector routes), to help guide the user to destinations in each direction.
Decision signs are used to highlight bends or jogs in the bike route, and in some cases will also indicate where the route is leading to.
Decision-Direction signs are used where there are only a few destination options or a fingerboard may not function well due to space or visibility.
Confirmation Streetblades are used on bike routes to provide confirmation and awareness to all users that there is a bike route.
Bike-only Streetblades are used on pathways in their own right-of-way (such as a shared pathway that runs adjacent to an LRT line or in an old railway corridor) to identify the name of the street that the path crosses.
The Confirmation Route Marker is used to show key intersections and distances on long linear routes.
Map-based Decision Signs are used at complex locations where other wayfinding is insufficient to guide users.
