Community Event

The City of Kamloops will be undertaking public consultation on its updated Bicycle Master Plan at the Farmers Markets this week.

This will be an opportunity for the public to provide input into the draft plan.

Cycling is an important component of a city's transportation system. Cycling facilities and programs can help reduce automobile dependency and consequently reduce traffic congestion and vehicle emissions.

A key objective of the TravelSmart Plan was to develop a more multimodal transportation system that would encourage more people to cycle for work and other purposes. A follow-up to TravelSmart was the preparation of a Bicycle Master Plan, which focused on the planning/development/implementation of a safer bicycle network to encourage more cycling and thus help achieve a key TravelSmart objective.
