EDITOR’S NOTE: There has been some debate about whether bike lanes on Bloor would hurt or harm businesses. Spacing is republishing this infographic from our Fall 2014 issue to help inform the discussion.
In March 2014, the Ryerson University Urban and Regional Planning studio group, Ryerson Planning and Consulting, examined visitors’ and merchants’ opinions about potential changes to street use allocation, including implementation of active transit, along stretches of Bloor Street and Danforth Avenue. The Toronto Centre for Active Transportation hopes that the study will be used to inform further discussion of the relationship between parking, active transportation, and business.
