TransLink recommends using routes with dedicated cycling infrastructure separated from motor vehicles, such as bike lanes, as much as possible.
The City of Vancouver has closed Stanley Park and a lane on Beach Avenue to motor to vehicles provide more space for walking and cycling.
While half of all trips under 5 km in Metro Vancouver are made by car, many trips under 5 km for groceries, prescriptions, and other essentials can easily be done by bicycle. Running errands by bike is often faster and more convenient than driving.
Where there is high demand for continuing transit services and low levels of service, please consider alternative walking and cycling corridors as options. To map out your cycling route, visit TransLink’s Cycling Maps page.
Please check your city’s website to see what public amenities are closed. Road infrastructure and parks’ green spaces, including multi-use trails, currently remain open and accessible.
