This was announced on Tuesday by the Parti Québécois (PQ) candidate in Taschereau, Jeanne Robin, in a press release.

A PQ government would double the amounts invested in support programs for municipal active transportation infrastructure to reach $100 million per year, she indicated.

The PQ is also committed to setting an example by gradually transforming the network managed by the Ministère des Transports.

“When passing through towns and villages, the “numbered road” must be transformed into a peaceful street and make more room for cyclists and pedestrians, as several mayors have recently demanded. In addition, in Quebec, we are committed to transforming several urban highways into boulevards to limit the barrier effect,” said Jeanne Robin.

The PQ would also support the deployment of bike-sharing services in all regions of Quebec, and would create an incentive program for the purchase of cargo bikes and electric cargo bikes, similar to the subsidies that exist for the purchase of electric cars, can we read in the press release.
