The City of Coquitlam is committed to sustainable modes of transportation and has 117 km of cycling infrastructure, including 32 km of multi-use pathways.
New cycling routes are provided in accordance with our Strategic Transportation Plan and routes are implemented pending Council’s approval of the annual capital budget.
Our streets accommodate biking, walking and driving and the City encourages all users to be mindful of all modes when sharing our streets.
Go by Bike Week and Events
Every year, bike-friendly Coquitlam partners with local non-profit HUB Cycling on promotional events and activities, encouraging the health and environmental benefits of bike commuting with education, celebration stations and team or personal challenges.
Interactive Regional Bike Map
Coquitlam cyclists can choose their route 'on the go' with an interactive regional bike map on the CoquitlamConnect app (available free through the App Store and Google Play).
Coquitlam updated CoquitlamConnect with a map of cycling routes in Coquitlam and throughout Metro Vancouver to provide more opportunities for residents to enjoy safe and healthy outdoor activities.
Choose Your Map Route
The new map makes use of cycling route data from Metro Vancouver municipalities that was collected by TransLink and HUB Cycling. The map’s interactive features allow cyclists to filter routes based on their skill levels as well as whether the routes are off-street, on-street or on a major street. This digital map augments existing cycling map handouts, allowing for a more accessible and up-to-date digital option.
Bike Route Information Guide
Please refer to the Coquitlam’s Bike Route Information Guide (PDF) for more information on various types of bike facilities, cycling signs/markings and safe cycling tips. Free printed copies are also available at City facilities.
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.
Strategic Transportation Plan Update
How we move people and goods in, through and around Coquitlam is changing. So it is time to update our Strategic Transportation Plan to respond to these changes and plan for the challenges ahead by providing a new vision for Coquitlam’s transportation system for the future.
Greenways are linear public corridors for pedestrians and cyclists that connect activity centres throughout the city and split into city-wide and neighbourhood designations.
City-wide greenways are long, continuous routes that connect major destinations throughout the City comparable to arterial streets for pedestrians and cyclists.
Neighbourhood greenways are shorter and provide connections to local destinations 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.
Guildford Greenway Micromobility Project
The project extends along Guildford Way from the Port Moody border to Pinetree Way and will provide an upgrade to the existing painted bicycle lane by providing users protection from vehicles through physically-separated micromobility/cycling lanes.
