2018–2022 Strategic Plan
Infrastructure Master Plans
Kilometres of active transportation routes is one of three key performance indicators relating to the Improving the Ability to Get Around priority, one of five priorities outlined in City Council's
2018–2022 Strategic Plan.
Improving the active transportation network in the City provides viable options for the community to choose active transportation options making this a good leading indicator. Active transportation routes include bike and walking trails, bike lanes and sidewalks.
In 2020, active transportation routes were improved by adding a total of 27.10 kilometres of bike lanes/urban shoulders and sidewalks/trails. When added to the total reported in 2019, there are 1,000.1 km of active transportation routes in Barrie.
A bicycle lane is a portion of roadway that has been designated by pavement markings for the use of bicyclists. An urban shoulder is a painted white edge line that creates a separated cycling facility from the vehicle travel lanes where dedicated cycling facilities are not provided.
Continued advancement of the work outlined in the master plans.
As of December 2019, the City had 973 km of active transportation routes. In 2019, the City built 2.154 km of sidewalks and trails.
The City made a concentrated effort in the five years prior to 2019 to build active transportation options.
Active Transportation Strategy / Update to the Multi-Model Active Transportation Master Plan / Trails Master Plan 2019 This plan provides a blueprint for enhancing walking and cycling infrastructure, programs and initiatives over the next 20+ years. It identifies long-term recommendations to help guide implementation and provides City staff and its partners with tools, references and guidelines to aid in the future of active transportation decision making.
