Cycling investment supports healthy, active communities

Cycling investment supports healthy, active communities
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is providing $6 million in BikeBC funding to communities this year to enhance and expand cycling infrastructure such as bike lanes, multi-use paths and trails, and cycling/pedestrian bridges. The funding is part of B.C. on the Move, the Government of B.C.’s 10-year transportation plan.
“Applications for this year’s BikeBC funding are now open,” said Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone. “Local governments across the province are incorporating more cycling infrastructure into their community plans, and by doubling our funding in the BikeBC program, we’re enabling municipalities of all sizes to encourage and promote active lifestyles and viable transportation options for B.C. families.”
