The City of Winnipeg is asking residents to provide feedback on their experiences with the 2021 Enhanced Summer Bike Route Program through an online survey.
For more information and to complete a survey, visit: winnipeg.ca/summerbikes.
As part of the program, the City created dedicated cycling routes on 17 streets throughout Winnipeg. This was achieved by limiting motor vehicle traffic to one block, either daily or on Sundays and holidays only (depending on route), from May to November. The program was first piloted in 2020 as a response to COVID-19 and the need for safe spaces for recreation while maintaining social distance.
We are now looking to Winnipeggers to help us better understand how community members, residents, and cyclists experienced the Enhanced Sunday Holiday Bike Route Program pilot. We are also looking to gauge whether there is desire to continue any or all of the routes in some capacity beyond 2021 or until full studies can be conducted in each route’s respective area.
Feedback we receive through the online survey will be presented alongside information on costs, usage, and operational considerations in a report to Council in 2022.
