Cycling Infrastructure Funding

To encourage healthy living and to help address climate change, the Province of B.C. is cost-sharing cycling infrastructure projects with local government through our BikeBC program.

BikeBC applications are evaluated on how they improve safety for cyclists:

  • Separated bike /multi-use paths
  • Cyclist/pedestrian bridges and overpasses
  • Buffered bike lanes (for example, those that can be separated by barriers such as parked vehicles or painted medians with increased width)
  • Marked bike lanes
  • Shoulder bikeways
  • Shared roadways

*See other project selection criteria

Funded projects promote cycling to work, school or errands. Cycling infrastructure improves safety and reduces traffic congestion and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Cycling infrastructure projects can also generate tourism-related traffic based on their proximity to amenities and points of interest for tourists, and through linkages to other communities.

Active Transportation Design Guide

This free resource, published by the B.C. government, will help guide communities in building safe, effective active transportation infrastructure.

This document will be updated over time to reflect evolving best practices. If you have input about the BC Active Transportation Design Guide, or would like to discuss it further, please submit your feedback to
