Cycle Zone Analysis

Project Description

As part of the TransLink Regional Cycling Study, Cycle Zone Analysis (CZA), our team prepared a GIS-based assessment of cycling and cycling-related infrastructure within Metro Vancouver. This zonal approach provided a fine-grained understanding of the local cycling conditions within the region. It assisted in identifying strategic investment opportunities with the greatest potential to increase cycling within Metro Vancouver.

The Bikeway Quality Index (BQI) shown in the accompanying image, analyzed existing bicycle facilities and assessed the relative quality of these routes based on user comfort. The metrics for this analysis included:

  • Lighting
  • Signage and Markings
  • Zones of Caution (Corridors)
  • Jogs In The Network
  • Speeds And Volumes
  • On-Street Parking
  • Surface Type
  • Traffic Calming
