Cycling in the City of Ottawa

Cycling in the City of Ottawa

(Theme 1 – Transportation, Theme 8 – Health, Theme 9 – Recreation)

Organization: City of Ottawa

Timeline for Completion: 2019


Flora Footbridge
The Flora Footbridge officially opened for use on 28 June 2019. In the four full months since opening, over 330,000 active transportation trips have been recorded by people crossing the Rideau Canal in this location.

Bank Street Underpass
Another project completed earlier this summer is the underpass of Bank Street along the Rideau River Eastern Pathway. For people walking and biking along the pathway, this underpass provides an alternative route that by-passes the intersection of Bank Street and Riverside Drive intersection.

Cycling and Light Rail, New Routes
With the opening of O-Train Line 1, cyclists are welcome to park at Line 1 and Line 2 stations and use the train and bus connections to extend their trip, or to take their bike on-board the train.

Nepean Trail
Residents in central Nepean now have a new low stress cycling route that can be used as an alternative to busy Merivale Road between Baseline Road and Woodfield Drive. The 5 kilometre long Nepean Trail alternates between buffered bike lanes, quiet side streets and multi-use pathways and forms the eastern part of a longer 12 kilometre route leading towards the western Greenbelt.
