Support Bike Lanes on The Drive - Please Donate
Good news! The City of Vancouver is starting public consultation how to make Commercial Drive better for people of all ages cycling and using public transit.
The BC Cycling Coalition has been working with the folks from Streets For Everyone over the last two years in their efforts to make the Drive a street that works for everyone. The core changes we are aiming for include widened sidewalks, better transit and transit shelters, protected bike lanes, better pedestrian crossings and more marked or signalized crosswalks, more street furniture, and more landscaping. More here.
Unfortunately, in spite of evidence that bike lanes are good for business and support from several Drive businesses, the Commercial Drive BIA has come out against bike lanes. They even have a petition with 5,000 signatures opposing the bike lane.
We need your help to continue to support Streets For Everyone by coordinating business outreach, petitioning and public engagement. Please contribute $5, $10, $15, or $20 per month or make a one-time donation.
