What are separated bike lanes?
Separated bike lanes are routes where cyclists are physically separated from traffic by a barrier. The lanes create more protection and make cyclists feel safer – especially less experienced riders – and encourage more people to get out of their cars and onto bikes into downtown.

Cycling is one of the City’s transportation priorities, and the fastest-growing method of travel in Vancouver.
Over the past 10 years, our bicycle network has more than doubled in size. With over 400 lane kilometres, our cycling network is ever growing with more routes being added annually.
By expanding the bicycle network, we are hoping to reduce traffic congestion and support a clean, green and healthy mode of transportation that can be an everyday choice for everyone. Our aim is to continue to provide convenient, efficient facilities for cyclists and to encourage more people to ride their bicycles for day-to-day transportation and leisure.
