In 2023, Council approved $56 million for Calgary’s Pathway and Bikeway Network, aiming to offer year-round, healthy, safe, accessible and affordable travel options. This network spans the city, improving access to workplaces, schools, parks, and local destinations while enhancing safety and connectivity for all.

As part of the Calgary Transportation Plan, we're committed to expanding this network over 60 years by filling gaps, adding features, and supporting various activities such as walking, cycling, and scootering. With over 4,000 km of pathways and bikeways mapped out for the future of travel in Calgary, these new enhancements and paths will foster vibrant, connected communities in Calgary.


There are many Pathway and Bikeway Network initiatives taking place in the city. We're trying to make it easier for you to stay in touch with projects in your areas of interest.

From this main page, you can learn about how these projects fit together to support the citywide Pathway and Bikeway Network Program both in the short and long term. You can also learn about the details of each local project by clicking through the project tiles below.

Your input, and the input of other citizens and interest holders, helps The City understand the public’s perspectives, opinions, and concerns. Input collected during each phase of the project will be compiled and shared through a “What We Heard” report.

Current Engagement:

The Pathway and Bikeway Network Program will have three phases of engagement:

  • Phase 1- Discover: Identify local and site-specific challenges and opportunities that will help inform design options.
  • Phase 2 - Explore: Present design options for the public and interest holder feedback. Specifically, how does a design concept impact the following: parking, community access, pedestrian crossing and safety, pedestrian comfort, cycling comfort and safety.
  • Phase 3 - Reveal: Present the proposed design to the public and interest holders and articulate rationale for the design choice.

Previous Engagement:

The City conducted previous engagement on the Calgary and Area Pathway and Bikeway Plan in 2017.

Calgarians have told us that their walkways, pathways, and bike lanes need to be accessible, safe, reliable, and welcoming year-round. Through city-wide engagement, five design principles were formed to guide The City.

These principles are outlined in the 5A Network Guiding Principles Report:

  • Separate people by their speed
  • Make it easy to use
  • Be accessible for everyone
  • Make it reliable
  • Improve visibility
