More Funding for Active Transportation

Thanks to $36,500 in provincial funding, Cape Bretoners will see more bike lanes, bike racks for buses, and an assessment of a popular active transportation route.

Some of the funding will go to CBRM for bike lanes and bike racks for Transit Cape Breton while the remaining funding will go to Velo Cape Breton. Velo Cape Breton will assess how students and residents are using the multi-use path that runs from the Mayflower Mall to CBU and Marconi Campus. 

These projects improve our neighbourhoods and reduce the need for students and residents to rely on their cars to get to the services and facilities they use every day.

We announced the funding yesterday in Sydney as part of the Connect2 program. Connect2 is one way the Province promotes and supports active transportation keeping Cape Bretoners healthier and more active while building on Nova Scotia’s position as a national leader on climate change.
