Two TransLink-funded projects win at the 2023 HUB Cycling Bike Awards

The upgraded bike path along Glover Rd in the City of Langley

Cycling is in our blood too! We go beyond just transit across Metro Vancouver and have invested millions of dollars in infrastructure to make transportation easier. Last year alone, we provided $130 million for 107 infrastructure projects across the region with many related to cycling infrastructure. Two of these projects are now award winning!

Which projects won?

The 10th annual HUB Cycling Awards recently took place, recognizing outstanding commitment to improve bike commuting across Metro Vancouver. We are honored to have two of our funded projects win Infrastructure Improvement Awards.

The Prarie Ave. Multi-Use Path in Port Coquitlam

The first is the Prairie Avenue multi-use pathway project, completed by the City of Port Coquitlam. We provided $320,000 through our Major Road Network and Bike (MRNB) funding stream. The 3-metre wide, lit, multi-use path is the first east-west, cross-town connection in the city, providing access to many key connections such as shopping areas.

The second project to win is the City of Langley’s Glover Road protected bike lane. We provided $1.2 million over 3 years to help cover a majority of the project’s costs.

Our commitment to sustainable transportation in Metro Vancouver

We’re more than just transit! We’re committed to connecting the region through a sustainable transportation network, and transit is just one of the few things we do to make Metro Vancouver more livable and sustainable. We also provide funding and support to the Major Road Network, consisting of transit, cycling, and pedestrian projects across the region.

We’re so happy to be one of many winners during this event, sharing the magic with the likes of the Park Royal Shopping Centre, Moscrop Secondary School, and the City of Burnaby to name a few.

HUB Cycling is a non-profit organization which advocates for making it easier to go cycling across Metro Vancouver. Now in its 25th year, it has advocated for health, environmental, and economic benefits that active transportation can bring.
