Réseau Express Vélo (Express Bicycle Network)

Interim development designs for bicycle paths totalling 184 km.

The Réseau Express Vélo (REV) is a projected bicycle path network with 184 km of trails spanning the entire territory of the Island of Montréal. It will include 17 routes that are open year-round in order to meet the city’s goal of bicycle travel accounting for 15% of trips within 10 years.

CIMA+ was entrusted with the design of interim configurations for several REV routes. These designs had to take into account local community needs while optimizing user safety, universal accessibility and travel conditions for cyclists. In addition, despite their interim nature, the proposed facilities must be sustainable and properly integrated into the local community.

This project is part of a sustainable development approach that includes the design of road network configurations facilitating the addition of bicycle links that will provide Montréal residents with an efficient, safe, user-friendly and competitive alternative to single-occupancy vehicle use.
