Bike Routes Feedback

Via the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues

(With 95th avenue scheduled to have on-street bike lanes created in 2013 and with the existing paths and connectivity in the area, this could be a great opportunity for the city to hear feedback and advice from Glenwood’s cyclists)

The City of Edmonton is interested in consulting with residents who bicycle commute regarding the system of on-street bike routes throughout the city.

Banister Research & Consulting Inc. has been retained to assist with the gathering of feedback in the form of a focus group and the analysis of the responses. We are conducting focus group research in the evening during the week of November 12th to the 16th, 2012.

Please forward this request to your members. Those interested in attending the focus group can contact Chris Stover at (780) 447-9017. We have limited space in the focus group; therefore people will be registered to attend on a first come, first served basis.

If you have questions regarding the legitimacy of the research, please contact Pam Hnytka at 780-442-1507 or via email at pam.hnytka@edmonton.ca.
