Google Maps bicycle directions are now live in Canada.
Google maps routing service for bicycles went live for Canadian cities yesterday. Type your start and destination address and click the bicycle icon for a route that selects for bike paths (shown in dark green), bike lanes (shown in light green) and designated bike routes (dashed green).
Like with the USA version, you have the opportunity to report problems (e.g. non-connecting paths, routing on bike-prohibited roads) to Google Maps. In my experience, you can expect to see the problem resolved within about three or four weeks.
Detailed bike facility information is available for Gatineau QC, Ottawa ON, Waterloo ON, Toronto ON, Edmonton AB, Calgary AB, Winnipeg MB, Vancouver BC and Kelowna BC. Outside of those cities, Google selects for lower traffic roads.
Here’s an example: Gatineau, QC to Ottawa, ON
Thank you to Eco Localizer for the heads up on this.
