Burnaby Cycling Forums- June 18th and July 5th, 2018

In an effort to help inform the City of Burnaby's upcoming Transportation Plan update, HUB Burnaby wants to hear from people who currently cycle or want to cycle throughout the city. Do you want better North-South connections? A network of protected bike lanes? Upgrades to the Central Valley Greenway & BC Parkway? Your input at this forum is vital to getting a plan that gets more people cycling more often.

Forum 1: Monday, June 18th, 7pm at McGill Library (4595 Albert St, Burnaby, BC)

Forum 2: Thursday July 5th, 7pm at Bob Prittie Library (6100 Willingdon Ave, Burnaby, BC)
