Dedicated Non-Motorist Lane on Vancouver Bridge Finds Public Support

Residents in Vancouver are reportedly in favor of keeping a dedicated lane for pedestrians and cyclists on a local bridge. Even some motorists are in support.

"The Sept. 23-28 survey conducted by the Mustel Group asked 310 Vancouverites for their views on the trial, which opened a southbound lane to pedestrians and cyclists on June 13.

Much of the support came from downtown and west side residents, with 57 per cent and 60 per cent in favour respectively."

51% of people driving alone on the bridge said they support an extension of the trial, while 31% were opposed.
