Ontario announces $50m for bike network

The Ministry of Transportation in Ontario, Canada, has announced new funding to improve the cycling network.

The province is investing CA$50m (£29m) this year to fund initiatives that support commuter cycling infrastructure. The Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling Program (OMCC) will provide eligible municipalities with funding to build more bike lanes and other cycling infrastructure, or enhance existing infrastructure.

The investment is designed to help promote safety for cyclists and make cycling more comfortable and appealing for daily commutes and other frequent trips.

Minister of tourism, culture and sport Eleanor McMahon said: “Ontario is home to an extensive cycling and trails network that stretches across the province, connects our communities and offers unique views of our urban and rural landscapes. By building new cycling infrastructure, we are making it easier for people to get on their bikes and explore all that Ontario has to offer.”
