Toronto’s Great Streets


Toronto is a city of neighbourhoods, which are often defined by main streets. But these streets are not just for moving cars, bikes, and transit. Beyond their transportation functions, main streets lined by storefronts, patios, and public spaces lend a unique character to a community. Streets connect places, and they also connect people. A great street redesign can transform a neighbourhood for the better.

Ryerson City Building Institute’s report “Toronto’s Great Streets” profiles five recently redesigned Great Streets in Toronto and uncovers some of their ingredients for success. Click HERE FOR REPORT

The need for proven strategies to improve safety and build cooperation on our streets has never been greater. Smart street redesigns can support our Vision Zero commitments, and potentially save lives.
