Quito announced it will instal 62.7 km of bicycle lanes across the city. The bicycle lanes are being added to encourage carbon-neutral, sustainable transportation options, encourage exercise and provide space for physical distancing among travellers. The main area of implementation will be the Paseo Dominical (Ciclovía Recreativa) route, which crosses approximately 30 km from north to south and connects the entire city. In addition, bicycle lanes that connect the city west to east will be added along routes that are connected to Quito’s metro stops, hospitals, schools and supermarkets. These routes are familiar to individuals from the Ciclovías, or open streets, held every Sunday. The bicycle lanes are being installed through a partnership between the Quito’s Metropolitan Transit Agency (AMT), the Metropolitan Public Company for Mobility and Public Works (EPMMOP) and with groups of cyclists, who have provided information on how people move in the city including bicycle messengers and those making deliveries.
