Toronto joins National Association of City Transportation Officials

See also

Toronto has joined the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) network, and partnering with member cities such as as New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and more. NACTO facilitates the exchange of transportation ideas, insights and best practices among large cities, while fostering a cooperative approach to key issues facing cities and metropolitan areas.

We are now going to count our cycling on-street network according to lane kilometers. Historically Toronto has tracked road kilometers which has proven problematic when comparing Toronto to other eities who count according to lane kilometers. Counting road kilometers may also be problematic for routes where there is only a bike lane in one direction (eg. Vaughan Rd., and contra-flow bike routes etc.). We have calculated that Toronto currently has 544.7 lane kilometers installed, the rate of future progress on projects will now be counted in lane kilometers.

Great to receive this announcement during Bike Month.
