Cycling is a key component of the Province's strategy for encouraging healthy living and addressing climate change, in conjunction with the Province's Climate Action Plan and the Provincial Transit Plan.
BikeBC is the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure's cost-sharing program that assists local governments to develop cycling infrastructure. Since its inception, BikeBC's investments have resulted in over 100 projects that range in size and scope, reflecting the diversity of BC's geography and communities.
Projects that have been completed under this program include: bike lanes, separated bike paths, shared roadways, shoulder bikeways and bicycle/pedestrian overpasses. Whether it is the Central Valley Greenway that connects the Cities of Vancouver, Burnaby and New Westminster, or the Tyner Boulevard Cycle Trail that provides an important link to the University of Northern British Columbia – these projects and a myriad of others represent strategic investments in making cycling a safer and more convenient option for travelers.
