Cycling Survey Open Now; First Step in Active Transportation Connection Plan

August 16, 2016 - The City invites the public to participate in an online survey on cycling in Fredericton to help the City set priorities for the active transportation network.

Gathering public input is a first step in creating an Active Transportation Connection Plan, which will help guide the growth of cycling and pedestrian infrastructure over the next 10+ years. The survey asks questions regarding the cycling needs and wants of the citizens of Fredericton as well as gaps and opportunities in the current trail and bike lane network.

“We’re looking for anyone who is interested in the future of cycling in Fredericton to fill out this survey to give us their thoughts – whether you’re an avid cyclist or if you rarely get on a bike,” said Transportation Committee Chair Henri Mallet. “We appreciate the public’s input on how we should move forward with our active transportation network.”

The survey will be open from August 16 to September 6, 2016. It can be taken online using the link below or by filling out a paper copy, available at the Imagination Station outside City Hall.

The survey results will be reported to the Transportation Committee in Fall 2016 together with a timetable and recommended action plan on how to address the findings.

About the Active Transportation Connection Plan

  • The Trails/Bikeways Master Plan, created in 2007, was the starting point for the City in active transportation planning in Fredericton. Now it is now time to update this work. Some of the key questions that the Active Transportation Connection Plan will consider are:
  • What are the biggest gaps in the trail network?
  • What are the biggest gaps in the bike lane network?
  • How should the City upgrade bike lanes through intersections and how should they be prioritized?
  • How should trail crossings of streets be treated?
  • What future trail or bike lane connections should the City be pursuing?
