Studies show that creating a km of bollard-protected bike lanes is about $380,000, which may sound like a lot. But in comparison, a one km stretch of a bus rapid transit system comes in at $500,000 and it’s a big jump up to $326 million per km to build a light rapid transit line, such as the Eglinton Cross town LRT. But all of these numbers are a fraction of the $1 billion per km needed to build more subway lines.
