How many cyclists are using the Bloor bike lanes?

Bells on Bloor volunteers were busy last week analyzing a video record of traffic on Bloor near Brunswick, and for the first time, have provided the city with a 24 hour count over five consecutive weekdays.


The results are in, and on one particular week in September, over 6000 cyclists used the bike lanes each day.  As we prepare for the October 18 PWIC meeting, let’s keep this in mind. You can also see from the above chart that over 600 cyclists per hour are seen at peak periods, and at no time during the day does this number dip below 200 bikes/hr (five day average).
