Montreal's new Plan de Transport 2007

Montreal has a new transport plan to guide it for the next few years of urban development.

Surprisingly, the plan is enthusiastic about bicycles.

The map showing current and proposed bicycle paths reveals a plan to double the amount of bike path on Montreal island. The total amount of bike paths ("piste cyclables") will go from 400 km to 800 km.

This sounds like a lot, but it's not, and not nearly enough. We want more!

Decide for yourself, here's the link to downloading the plan de transport report (link).

Here's the link to the Ville De Montreal website for the transport plan (link).

Some good news: there will be a winter bike path network, the city will keep these paths clean for use by hardy winter cyclists.
