The City of Calgary is working to achieve the targets set out in the Council-approved Cycling Strategy to become a bike-friendly city by planning, designing and building more on-street bikeways, particularly bike lanes and cycle tracks. Research has shown that properly designed and constructed bikeways can encourage more people to choose cycling as a viable form of transportation by improving safety and comfort.
Funding for bikeway projects comes from the Council-approved City-Wide Active Modes program, which is part of the Transportation Business Plan and Budget. Whenever possible, The City implements bikeway improvements with scheduled road paving to cost-effectively improve the roadway design so it functions better for all users, and install the infrastructure and pavement markings with minimal disruptions.
