A: Invest $40 per person per year in cycling paths and separated bike lanes.
The Federal Government is projecting large surpluses in coming years. The current government is talking about tax cuts.
Another option would be for the Federal Government provide communities funding for cycling improvements such as separated bike lanes and cycling paths. The Netherlands, for example, invests around $40 per person per year in cycling.Take the survey
Tegan Williams answered 2019-09-16 12:57:39 -0700Q: Please rate how strongly you support or oppose the investment of $100 million per year over 10 years in cycling and walking.
A: Strongly Support
The BC government spends around $2 billion per year on transportation, primarily on highway expansion, road maintenance and transit. The BC Cycling Coalition estimates that it will cost around $2 billion to complete cycling networks and $2.5 billion to complete walking networks in communities across BC.
The BC Cycling Coalition recommends that the BC Government invest $100 million per year over 10 years to help complete cycling and walking networks in communities across BC. This investment in protected bike lanes, paths, sidewalks and safer intersections would help people of all ages including children and seniors to safely cycle, walk and use wheelchairs.
