City's New Bike Rack Program Offers Discounts to Local Businesses
Oct 7, 2020
The City of Greater Sudbury is launching a new program to help local businesses accommodate the growing number of cyclists in our community. The Bike Racks for Businesses program will allow businesses to purchase bike racks at up to 60 per cent off retail price.
“I’m very pleased to support a program that contributes to a healthier community, and promotes transportation options that keep our environment top of mind,” said Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger. “I encourage our local businesses to take advantage of this great program and improve the accessibility of their locations to all residents.”
This program is available to businesses operating within the City of Greater Sudbury and will offer two pre-order periods: fall 2020 and spring 2021.
The Bike Racks for Businesses program was approved by City Council in 2019 as part of plans to continue to make the City more bicycle-friendly. Work continues on new cycling infrastructure throughout Greater Sudbury. Most notably in 2020, physically separated cycle tracks are currently being installed on the east and west sides of Notre Dame Avenue between Wilma Street and LaSalle Boulevard. This work is scheduled to be complete in November.
Fall bike rack pre-orders are now open and will be accepted until October 30, 2020.
