#CycleON: Ontario’s Cycling Strategy

The September 2013 report by Ontario Ministry of Transportation lays out the strategy for the next 20 years and outlines what needs to be done to promote cycling across the province as a viable mode of transportation.

Vision 2033: “Cycling in Ontario is recognized, respected, and valued as a core mode of transportation that provides individuals and communities with health, economic, environmental, social and other benefits.”

Aspirational Goals for 2033

  2. The built environment in most Ontario communities supports and promotes cycling for all trips under 5 km.
  3. Ontario’s cycling environment is safe for people of all ages, striving to achieve a record of zero fatalities and few serious injuries.
  4. Ontario’s cities and towns will have interconnected networks of safe cycling routes enabling people to cycle to work, school, home and key destinations.
