What we heard

You’d like to see improvements in snow clearing and detours around construction. Satisfaction for biking in Calgary is increasing, and cycle tracks are extremely popular. Safety and accessibility are important to you for making walking and biking more attractive options for moving around Calgary. We are constantly working to make sidewalks and pathways more inclusive, safer and easier to use.

Council direction

Council's primary concern is for all transportation options to be safe and attractive choices for Calgarians. With plans and policies such as the Calgary Transportation Plan, The Safer Mobility Plan, Step Forward (pedestrian strategy), and the Cycling Strategy, we are constantly improving your mobility options.

Council has also increased our funding for snow and ice control on sidewalks and pathways to make winter walking and cycling easier and safer.
