    Are there plans to increase the number of e-scooter parking areas so that they properly integrate with our existing transit system? (providing more e-scooter parking near hubs like shopping centres and SkyTrain stations?) And are there plans add new bike infrastructure (bike lanes, traffic lights, crossings) to support novice riders to safely ride on Richmond streets?

    Thank you for your question. 

    Users with privately owned e-scooters may use available bike racks, which are located at all Canada Line stations and major destinations such as shopping centres and civic facilities.  As well, expansion of the shared e-scooter/e-bike service in the City operated by Lime is expected to continue as demand grows. Ridership will help to identify desire lines for active transportation infrastructure enhancements. 

    Public engagement held in 2021 for the update of the City’s cycling network plan will also inform future improvements to the City’s cycling network.  The final Cycling Network Plan, which will identify short-, medium- and long-term cycling infrastructure priorities, is anticipated be presented to Council in early summer 2022.

    Are there plans to adopt a School Streets program, like the one being piloted in the City of Vancouver, to encourage active transportation among staff and students?

    bryant asked about 2 months ago

    The City undertakes and supports a number of initiatives and on-going activities to increase the level of traffic and pedestrian safety around schools which supports active transportation. 

    These include joint initiatives with external agencies to improve traffic safety around schools; establishing traffic control measures around school zones; and provision of pedestrian and cycling infrastructure to support safe routes to schools.  The City also funds cycling skills education courses for all Grade 6 & 7 students.  A recent staff report also outlines a proactive approach to implement potential measures to improve traffic safety around schools: https://www.richmond.ca/agendafiles/Open_PWT_4-20-2022.pdf

    The traffic calming signs on fundy create a dangerous situation for residents of cavendish and pugwash place trying to access the walkway towards williams rd. There are no sidewalks and many times, end up face to face with vehicles trying to squeeze between the road sign and the curve. Questions on lack of crosswalks for these residents or the increased risks to the remained unanswered.
