Economic impact of separated bike lanes to be focus of new city study

The Vancouver Economic Development Commission today confirmed details of an economic study to monitor the impacts of the city’s new separated bike lanes.

Current data indicates the latest lane, on Hornby, has not produced any significant traffic details and monthly bicycle counts are steadily marching upward.

This study, committed when the Hornby trial was approved, was designed in consultation with downtown business organizations and will be conducted at arms length from the city.
