Burrard Bridge poised to pass 1 million bike trips . . . and that’s just in 2015!

Remember when satellite news trucks gathered at the Burrard Bridge to document the fiasco of the Burrard Bridge bike lane? Way back in 2009? It was the disaster that didn’t happen and the bike lane has been a big success.

Now Burrard Bridge bike route, now much improved, is set to register its one millionth trip of 2015. It’s a great achievement, and folks, traffic is flowing smoothly. Final upgrades to the north end are set to begin soon. Here are the details just released by the city:

This week, the one millionth person in 2015 will cycle across the Burrard Bridge. Join the City of Vancouver’s BikeVancouver and the Greenest City Bright Green Summer teams to celebrate this milestone!

You can also submit a prediction as to when the Burrard Bridge cycling counter will reach 1,000,000.  Enter at the event, post your predictions on the BikeVancouver Facebook event page, or send it by email to bikevancouver@vancouver.ca to win a beautiful Herschel backpack loaded with BikeVancouver and Greenest City gear.
