Making space for people on public roads

Many cities in Ontario and around the world are rapidly expanding cycling and pedestrian networks. Some are building permanent infrastructure, and some are setting up temporary measures. The city of Berlin, Germany, published a guide to implementing temporary bike lanes within 10 days, to help cities quickly expand their networks. 

With such a rapid expansion of infrastructure, it’s difficult to keep your printed active transportation maps updated. Some cities, such as TorontoBurlington, and Brampton, complement their printed maps with online interactive maps, using Google Maps or ArcGIS. Adding to your existing online cycling maps is a great way to help people find these new routes.

What if you don’t already have an online map? If you have a Google account you can create your own Google Map to share or embed on your website. You can draw the new routes or import your existing network into Google Maps.

If you don’t have the time to create a Google Map yourself, I can help. You can book a free consultation on my website and we can chat.
