Under the Highway Traffic Act, bicycles are considered as vehicles. Cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. However, cyclists are one of the most vulnerable road user groups, so safety is always a prime concern. Cyclists should behave like traffic when using roads, regardless of whether cycling provisions are present.
Within Halton Region, only the City of Burlington permits cyclists to use sidewalks.

Cycling is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to commute or run errands. As a zero emission vehicle, bicycles are especially important for short trips (less than 5 km) because cars produce proportionately greater emission during short trips.
Halton Region employees at all Regional locations are encourages to participate in the Clean Air Commute (June 23 to 27, 2008), sponsored by Pollution Probe, by using alternative modes of transportation for their work commute and other travels.
The Cycling and Pedestrian Infrastructure Plan (1.7MB) was adopted by Regional Council in 2004 as a component of the Halton Transportation Master Plan.
The Infrastructure Plan established minimum guidelines for Halton cycling and pedestrian facilities.
