Is the city beginning to take the idea of a bike lane along Bloor-Danforth a bit more seriously? Perhaps. But it looks like we'll need to get a lot of people to phone the councillors on this list to convince them - even though a number of them are cycling friendly!
You can track the meeting here.
The City of Toronto Public Works and Infrastructure Committee will vote on Wednesday October 3 whether to adopt recommendations from a new report called Sustainable Transportation Initiatives – Short Term Proposals (http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2007/pw/bgrd/backgroundfile-7193.pdf)
that calls for a number of actions to promote public transit, cycling, and walking in Toronto (including working to implement an east-west bike corridor in the city by 2009 and studying the feasibility of a (long overdue) Bloor-Danforth bike lane.
You can contact the committee administrator, Rosalind Dyers at email@example.com or 416-392-8018 and ask to make a deputation at the meeting, which begins at 9:30 am in Committee room 1 at City Hall.
Please forward this widely!
