ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Calgary and Area Pathway and Bikeway Plan was developed in 2000 and needs updating. Many of the proposed pathways and bikeways from the plan were built. Some of the proposed pathways and bikeways are now obsolete because of changes to the roadway or approved developments. Also, new policies have been approved that impact the plan.

The updated plan will provide a proposed city-wide network of pathways and bikeways that will seamlessly connect Calgarians to the places they want to go.

For more information about the Calgary and Area Pathway and Bikeway Plan please visit the project page.



PROVIDE YOUR INPUT

The Calgary and Area Pathway and Bikeway plan is looking for your input to update the plan for a city-wide network of pathways and bikeways. We need your input on two important parts of the plan: 1) prioritization (how do we decide what to build and where?) and 2) pathway and bikeway design (what are you most likely to use?).

Almost everyone uses Calgary’s pathway and bikeway network to get around. Whether you walk to work or go for an occasional after-dinner stroll, use a mobility device to get around town, are an avid or recreational bicyclist, or whether you mostly drive a car and share the road with cyclists and pedestrians, we need your input.

Please answer as many of the questions below as you’d like. Once you have filled in the questions you’d like to answer please click the ‘submit’ button at the bottom of the page.

Please rank the following from 1-4, with 1 being the area we should focus on first, 2 being the secondary focus, etc.

    1. Social equity (improve areas where people are less likely to own or operate their own vehicle)
    2. Where we’ll get the most people walking and biking
    3. Routes where there are safety concerns and have been collisions in the past
    4. Spread evenly around the city
    You have 250 characters left.
    3. How important is it for you to be able to use pathways and bikeways to get to local destinations?

    (E.g. Local school, library, recreation centre, or coffee shop.) Please use a scale from 1-10 with 1 being not at all important and 10 being very important.

    4. How important is it for you to be able to use pathways and bikeways to get across town?

    Please use a scale from 1-10 with 1 being not at all important and 10 being very important

    5. Walking on a separated pathway

    How likely are you to choose to walk or use a mobility device on a pathway separated for walking and biking? (example shown below)

    6. Walking on a multi-use pathway

    How likely are you to choose to walk or use a mobility device on a pathway shared by people walking, biking, etc? (example shown below)

    7. Riding a bike on a separated pathway

    How likely are you to choose to ride a bike on a separated walking and biking space pathway? (example shown below)

    8. Riding a bike on a multi-use pathway

    How likely are you to choose to ride a bike on a pathway shared by people walking, biking, etc? (example shown below)

    9. Riding a bike on an average residential street

    How likely are you to choose to ride a bike on a average residential street? (example shown below)

    10. Riding a bike on a residential street designed for lower speeds

    How likely are you to choose to ride a bike on a residential street with a 30 km/h speed limit, and designed for slower speeds & fewer vehicles? (example shown below)

    11. Riding a bike on a separated bike lane

    How likely are you to choose to ride a bike on a separated bike lane that is separated by a barrier? (example shown below)

    12. Riding a bike on a painted bike lane

    How likely are you to choose to ride a bike on a painted lane on a busy street? (example shown below)

    13. Riding a bike on a shared bike/driving lane

    How likely are you to choose to ride a bike on a shared lane on a busy street? (example shown below)

    14. Do you have children under 18 living in your household?
    You have 100 characters left.
    16. What is your gender?
    18. How often do you walk or use a mobility scooter?
    19. How often do you ride a bike or a wheeled device (eg. skateboard, rollerblades, etc)?

    PREVIOUS ENGAGEMENT

    In Phase One, we asked for your help to identify challenges and difficulties with the current pathway and bikeway network, along with the locations that you travel to using the current network. You shared your feedback on our current pathway and bikeway network using an online survey and two online mapping tools. The feedback provided is helping us develop an updated network plan. The online survey and map based feedback opportunities were available from June 1 - 30, 2017.

    A summary of feedback and verbatim comments receiving during Phase One can be found within the What We Heard Report.



    NEXT STEPS

    Technical analysis is being conducted by the project team, which includes analyzing public feedback. Public feedback is helping us develop an updated network plan and criteria used to prioritize the implementation of the plan.
