Transportation Plan Letter

The Provincial Government is developing a new 10-year transportation plan, B.C. on the Move. Billions of dollars will be spent on this plan. Please write the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure to help ensure that cycling and walking get their fair share.

We strongly encourage the Province to implement a comprehensive Active Transportation Strategy building upon the BC Road Safety Strategy which commits to a long term goal of zero fatalities.  Safe and comfortable access for people walking, cycling, riding transit or using wheelchairs should be an integral part of the plan and of all the roads and bridges in BC.

Cycling facilities should be safe, convenient and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities including childrenand seniors. This includes bicycle paths and protected bike lanes that are designed to be safe for the higher speed cycling required for long distance commutingtraining and exercise.

Our recommendations include a $100 million per year investment in cycling and walking by the Provincial Government; upgrading cycling and walking facilities on provincial roads and bridges; improved standards that prioritize all ages and abilities separated bike lanes; universally available cycling skills training for children with provincial funding support; improved cycling and driver educationimproved standards & more funding for maintenance and hazard removal; a comprehensive cycling tourism strategy; and legislation to improve the safety and legal protection of people walking and cycling.

Relate your personal experiences regarding cycling issues and how investing in cycling facilities would help you, your family and community.

    to whom it may concern


    I hope we can have 5 horizontal and 5 vertical roads that are not high traffic in our city that allows anyone to bike. Usually, it is only the strongest that can bike. I hope that seniors, children and people with disabilities will also have a chance to enjoy biking on the streets. I think these roads should be for bikes only, if it is possible. It would be nice to start with Vancouver. Many people are too scared to bike with the cars there.


    thanks

    I would urge you to consider cycling infrastructure as a vital need for British Columbians as our province’s new transportation plan is implemented.


    Our Doctors Of BC (formerly British Columbia Medical Association) has a Council on Health Promotion to help address management of chronic disease attributed to lifestyle. Encouraging drivers to take up cycling for transportation is an excellent way to promote healthy lifestyles and reduce the burden of chronic disease on our overwhelmed public health care system. It also lowers dependence on fossil fuels, improves air quality, encourages more cohesive communities, fosters vibrant downtown cores and increases spending in local business.


    As a locum family doctor, I have spent nearly 8 years travelling to over 20 different rural communities in BC. I can report that the far majority lack any meaningful cycling infrastructure. Although I’ve cycled across Canada and cycled to school and work for my entire life, I do not feel safe riding my bike in most rural BC communities. Within and between all BC communities, we urgently need clearly identified exclusive cycling lanes, and intersections that are designed to be safe for cyclists.


    Living on one of the Gulf Islands, I can also attest to the absolute necessity of cycle commuting infrastructure. The working population of Gabriola is inextricably dependent on our ferry service. Over the last 3 years, our ferry service has been cut back and fares have been increased at a rate far beyond inflation. As a result of increased time spent waiting for ferries and the unaffordability of commuting to Vancouver Island, many working families have left. Of those who have stayed, many have mitigated these costs by cycle commuting. According to BC Ferries’ records, “between April 1, 2013, and March 31, 2014, there were 15,518 bicycle fares registered on the Gabriola route.” Unfortunately, however, the infrastructure for cycle commuting is non-existent. For example, when I commute to my part time position as an Emergency physician at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, I travel dangerous unlit narrow roads with unrestricted roadside parking, blind curves, and no cycling lane. When I exit the ferry in Nanaimo downtown, there are no roads connecting with the ferry terminal that have bicycle lanes. I then must ride through a dangerous busy intersection where cars are attempting to cross in front of my path into a right turning lane that yields onto the Island Highway. Even the posted bicycle routes I take often have on-road parking, or no labelled bicycle lane. It is no surprise that I have seen several cyclist-struck trauma patients in my work at NRGH.


    Please help make BC a happier, safer, healthier and more affordable place to live by supporting cycling initiatives within the new 10-year plan.


    Sincerely,


    Dr Jonathan Secord

    Riding my bike along Highway 5 in Kamloops on May 25th, 2014 I ran over a large piece of scrap metal on the road shoulder. It flipped up into the spokes of the front wheel & stopped my bike dead. I did a swan dive off the front and broke off the end of my elbow on impact. Relatively speaking, I was incredibly lucky. But still it resulted in two surgeries, and more than three & a half months completely off work and another three months of part-time work. I am a self-employed Registered Massage Therapist so this has been a financial challenge for me. But it has also been expensive for the province which will not receive much in the way of taxes from me this year, and has (thankfully!) paid for the excellent care I received. Please consider this type of economic impact as the transportation plan is developed for the entire province. Safe bike routes are important for all areas of the province.


    Sincerely,

    I’m writing to you concerning “B.C. on the move”, the Province’s 10-year transportation plan. I am pleased to see that cycling is at least mentioned, along with a commitment to “support and encourage cycling and walking by providing safe, accessible and convenient facilities on highways and roads”. On the other hand, I’m disturbed by the lack of specific details, such as a map showing the new routes to be added, or a budget allocation.


    You may not be aware that the Lower Mainland (where I leave) presently has huge gaps in its cycle network. As a consequence, there are many trips that, while fairly short, simply cannot be completed by bicycle, especially when riding with children or inexperienced cyclists. For example, I will happily ride with you on any route of your choosing between New Westminster and the Pitt River Bridge, but I think you’ll find it very unpleasant and dangerous, if possible at all.


    Opponents of cycle infrastructure will say that, in view of the small numbers of cyclists in BC, there is no need for safe, accessible routes. This argument neglects the fact that our transportation network is heavily biased against cycling, so that cycling here artificially depressed, to well below its natural level. (The natural level of cycling is what it would be in a neutral transportation network, one that provides adequately for all modes.) In countries with such a neutral network (or something approaching it) the level of cycling is around 20 – 30% of trips. These countries enjoy enormous benefits in mobility for all (including the poor, the young, and the disabled) and in health and safety.


    B.C. can easily enjoy similar benefits, if we’re prepared to spend rather modest sums of money. Cycling offers a fantastic return on investment.

    The Honourable Todd Stone, M.L.A,

    Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure

    Room 306, Parliament Buildings

    Victoria, BC V8V 1X4


    Dear Minister,


    As the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure develops its ten-year transportation plan, ‘BC on the Move,’ I would like to emphasize the importance of developing a plan that can move BC in a healthier direction.


    Specifically, the plan should:


    Make it easier for British Columbians to walk, bike or roll where they need to go.
    Commit to a comprehensive ‘Active Transportation Strategy’ for people to walk, bike or roll, aligning policy and funding to support the development of local infrastructure within a larger provincial network.
    BC should be investing between $88M and $175M in active transportation per year over the next ten years to meet the needs of British Columbians and to catch up with other leading jurisdictions. This should include investments in ‘universal design’ walking and rolling facilities, triple ‘A’ (all ages and abilities) cycling facilities and support for Active School Travel Planning.


    Make transit a more convenient choice for more British Columbians.
    Provide funding and policy support for the BC Transit Strategic Plan 2030 and TransLink’s Regional Transportation Strategy (2013).
    Address the needs of small towns and rural communities by providing funding and policy support for innovative approaches to public transit within communities and between regional centres.


    Ensure that provincial roads and highways work for all users.
    Include an ongoing program with funding for auditing, planning and upgrading cycling and walking facilities on provincial roads and bridges.
    Develop an Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) program for heavy-duty vehicles to reduce emissions.


    I would appreciate a response that outlines how the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will invest to support the transportation needs of transit users, pedestrians, cyclists and those in wheelchairs in ‘BC on the Move’


    Thank you for your time and consideration,


    Yours truly,
  • commented 2014-12-04 14:36:21 -0800
    Your greatest legacy as a decision-maker may be the level of investment, planning and development of progressive transportation laws, standards and infrastructure that you stood supported at this critical point in our province’s history.


    The safe and efficient movement of people and goods is about more than just cars and trucks, a dominant paradigm that is in much need of re-thinking. If we are to bridge the gap between the province we have been, and the province we need to be to anticipate future population growth and environmental protections and remediation, this paradigm must change, as was the case just 100 years ago with the widespread adoption of the internal combustion engine.


    While it is anticipated that recommendations around active transportation (walking, cycling) and transit investments and prioritization might be heard and given adequate consideration, bold action is needed to accommodate current transportation needs that are as diverse as the people who make up this province, and to provide the scalability to anticipate future needs.


    In short – walking, cycling and transit need significant leadership and support to gain he type of adoption that will be needed within 10 years.


    I urge you to take very seriously the recommendations of HUB Cycling, the BC Cycling Coalition, and the BC Healthy Living Alliance, particularly:


    - Proposals to connect communities in the Lower Mainland via all ages and abilities bridge, tunnel and other water crossings

    - AAA access to ferries and border crossings

    - Significant revisions to the Motor Vehicle Act

    - Coordinated changes to driver training via ICBC to account for increased presence of bicycles on all roads and related MVA changes

    - Investments in bike education for each region


    Thank you,


    Colin Stein
