VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – An online survey conducted by Research Co. reports more than two-thirds of people are happy with the bike infrastructure Vancouver offers.
With data collected from about 400 adults, Research Co. found seven out of 10 people support separated bike lanes through the city, which adds up to about 69 per cent.
Although 25 per cent of people are opposed to more bike lanes and five per cent are undecided in their opinion.
Research Co. president Mario Canesco says these findings aren’t surprising considering the number of people who rely on bikes for their commute.
“…90% of Vancouverites who commute to school or work on a bike express support for this type of infrastructure,” Canseco says. “We also see that majorities of Vancouverites who commute by taking public transit (79%) and driving (69%) are also in favour of having separated bike lanes.”
The survey also found about one-third of people aged 55 and over think Vancouver has too many separated bike lanes and should remove some.
