Toronto Bike Lanes
Save Jarvis Petition
City Hall wants to take away the Jarvis Street bike lanes.
We can change this. The 1,000 cyclists on Jarvis Street depend on those lanes for safety. There is simply no justification for removing these lanes. The street is working fine for everyone.
The biggest concern against the Jarvis Street bike lane prior to implementation was significant delays in travel times for motor vehicles. A staff report released in April shows that these delays have not materialized. Updated traffic counts from the City of Toronto showed that following the installation of bike lanes on Jarvis Street, motor vehicle volumes remained the same while cycling volumes tripled. It makes no sense to remove a bike lane from a street that works for all road users. It's time Toronto cyclists stand up to defend our public safety. Together, we can win this.
