The city of Toronto is planning to make some improvements to traffic flow along a section of Bloor West after preliminary numbers indicate rush hour trips are taking a few minutes longer since the separated bike lanes were installed last year.

That’s because there are 36% more cyclists using the lanes between Avenue Road and Shaw Street, resulting in an average of 4 more minutes during the morning rush hour and about another 8 minutes during the drive home.
An online survey shows those on two-wheels overwhelmingly love them, while only about one-third of motorists support the idea and local residents are more supportive than businesses.
The city will continue working with the various partners to measure and evaluate the year-long pilot project.
A final report will go to city council in the fall.
