The City is building a new network of all ages and abilities cycling infrastructure.
The goal is to improve road safety for people on bikes and connect the downtown core with schools, parks, community centres and other destinations.
The next phase of development for the City's bicycle network is focused on connecting neighbourhoods to the downtown core. Planning is now underway for projects on four corridors:
- Government Street North
- Richardson Street
- Kimta Road
Since October 11th, City staff have been collecting community input through an online survey, neighbourhood meetings, on-street information stations, and corridor tours providing valuable insights to inform the road design. The preliminary concept survey is open until November 30.
Check out the latest design concepts at one of the upcoming Open House events, scheduled from November 30 to December 7.

The City of Victoria is continuing to make investments in active transportation to improve safety and comfort for people walking and cycling. There are three major projects in 2019 proposed for The City of Victoria: Vancouver Street; Harbour Road; and a Hillside/Quadra connector. Information, proposed designs and engagement opportunities took place in Spring 2019 and were approved by Council in August 2019. Construction on all three projects is expected to start in early 2020.
Recently Open: Wharf-Humboldt Corridor
The Wharf-Humboldt protected bike lanes are now open. The shared-use cycling facilities along the remainder of the Humboldt corridor are scheduled to open in early 2020 once underground improvements are complete.
