Tri-Cities Cycling Map
The Tri-Cities Cycling Map (PDF) is your go-to resource for local bike routes and connections. It also provides useful information involving bike lockers at SkyTrain stations plus the newly installed bike maintenance stations. Pick up your free printed version of the map at Coquitlam City Hall, recreation facilities and Coquitlam Public Library branches.
Did you know you can bring your bicycles onto buses and SkyTrain? Even if you work a long way from home, you have the option of completing a portion of your trip by bicycle. More information is available in the Tri-Cities Cycling Map, or visit TransLink’s cycling page.
Greenways are linear public corridors for pedestrians and cyclists that connect activity centres throughout the City.
Greenways are split into citywide and neighbourhood designations:
citywide greenways are long, continuous routes that connect major destinations throughout the City. They are comparable to arterial streets for pedestrians and cyclists.
neighbourhood greenways are shorter and provide connections to local destinations. They are comparable to local streets for pedestrians and cyclists.
As industry practice shifts towards accommodating cyclists of all ages and abilities, we are transitioning to facilities that are physically separated from vehicle traffic.
Most greenways will include multi-use pathways (MUPs) with boulevards, pedestrian-scaled lighting, and landscaping treatments depending on available right-of-way. In more urban settings, we may need to provide more separation between pedestrian, bicycle, and other modes of active transportation.
