The Canada Line bike and pedestrian bridge turns one too

The Canada Line bike bridge is one as well!

Let’s not forget that the Canada Line bike and pedestrian bridge turned one this month as well!

The bridge formally opened on August 14, 2009: here’s the Buzzer blog post about the opening.

So far, the bridge seems to be humming along nicely. Counters installed on the bridge in January 2010 have tracked 73,469 bike trips across the bridge, as of August 12, 2010. The counters also show that 52% of the trips are into Vancouver and 48% are into Richmond.

Happy birthday, Canada Line bike and pedestrian bridge—here’s to another year of bike and walking traffic!
