Would that be the same Jarvis Street that installed bike lanes, then Rob Ford bullied Council into removing them a year later? Some quick facts:

  • The number of cyclists on Jarvis tripled when the bike lanes were installed.

  • Bike trips increased to 10% modal share on the street.

  • The average rush-hour automobile commute time went up 2 minutes.

  • The total number of collisions went down 23%.

  • The cost to remove the bike lanes: $300,000.

What Hamilton needs is city streets allowed to behave like city streets, not city streets being kicked around like political footballs by suburban councillors.
