Stakeholder Survey Results
In November, the Share the Road Cycling Coalition surveyed more than 360 cycling stakeholders from across Ontario. Ninety-five percent (95%) of respondents indicated that there has been momentum towards a more bicycle-friendly province over the past 3 years. Share the Road is committed to working with the province and stakeholders to ensure this momentum continues by advocating for future rounds of infrastructure funding, educational programs, the inclusion of paved shoulders on provincial roads and the launch of CycleON Action Plan 2.0.
