This page contains various research conducted by the Halifax Cycling Coalition, including student reports, internal research, briefing documents, and more. We will add research here as we create it. Note that this is not a comprehensive archive, but we aim to make it comprehensive from 2015 to the present.

Research on bicycle share

Travis Fong completed the following research on bicycle share during the summer of 2015 as part of his Bachelor of Environmental Science and Sustainability at Dalhousie University. He concluded that the bicycle share would attract 1,500 annual members and 6,000 day users, and would require a capital investment of $1,500,000 and an ongoing operational subsidy of $86,000 per year.

Research on protected bicycle lanes

In January 2015 we released our landmark On Track for 2020 research. This report outlined the potential for protected bicycle lanes in the regional centre, outlining a pilot network of 37km of protected bicycle lanes costing $1,500,000, and calls for the city to add 63km of traffic-calmed residential streets.
