Bicycle Transportation Plan - City of Edmonton
Similar to other major Canadian cities, Edmonton is experiencing strong growth with a trend towards further suburbanization, which has an effect on travel patterns across the City by increasing both car usage and trip distance. The Bicycle Transportation Plan, which was last updated in 1992, underwent a review and update through the course of 2007 and 2008, and was recently adopted by the City of Edmonton in March 2009. In the 17 years since the previous Bicycle Transportation Plan was adopted, the field of bicycle transportation planning and engineering has advanced significantly. A key reason for updating the Bicycle Transportation Plan is to consolidate the gains benefiting experienced cyclists while appealing to an additional broader demographic of potential cyclists who are open to considering the bicycle as an alternative mode of transportation.The paper presented herein gives a summary of the 2009 Bicycle Transportation Plan.
