Harbord & Bathurst Although an official announcement and public education campaign are needed, commuters riding this morning in the bike lane along Harbord were thoroughly enjoying the roominess of the new bike box.

Looks pretty good though. I like the advantage of less opportunity to be right-hooked at the light. One thing that's missing though is one of the main features of most bike boxes: The ability to allow cyclists to get over to the left turn lane. Since this bike box only covers the right lane, it doesn't provide this. I hope that the future incarnations of these bike boxes cover both lanes in each direction. Martin Reis (not verified) Lefty turn Tue, 06/03/2008 - 16:58 Excellent point, Vic, I was looking at some boxes in NYC and the manage this left turn quite well. Hope they go with that sort of design. Padraic (not verified) Left turn, with tracks Wed, 06/04/2008 - 10:39 Since moving to TO I've found making left turns especially scary on streetcar lanes, since I only want to hit the tracks at a right-angle. Hopefully some of these boxes will show up on those streets. Fin (not verified) Used this for the first time. . . Wed, 06/04/2008 - 23:55 A great start! I'd like to see it filled with a solid colour though, so that it's much more visible. Anonymous (not verified) bike boxes Thu, 06/05/2008 - 09:09 YAHOO......for the boxes.....it's about time a protective device is available for cyclists at busy intersections, especially when a City drawn bike lane has been on Harbord for years. I do not understand why Toronto is so slow in putting such easy to create devices on the streets. Cyclists can then ride safely and car drivers won't end up mamiming or killing an innocent bike commuter. Again, Yahoo for the bike box on Harbord....We want more, we want more, we want more.....

Yeah for bike boxes!!! stuart (not verified) Painted Over Wed, 07/16/2008 - 10:07 The Bike box seems to be painted over now, I noticed this morning. Anyone know why ? Ben re painted over Thu, 07/17/2008 - 12:03 Probably some motoring advocate is trying to take back the streets.
