The City of Coquitlam is committed to sustainable modes of transportation and more than 109 kilometres of bike routes have now been completed. New cycling routes are provided in accordance with our Strategic Transportation Plan and routes are implemented pending Council’s approval of the annual capital budget.

Our streets accommodate biking, walking and driving and the City encourages all users to be mindful of all modes when sharing our streets.

Bike to Shop

We support HUB Cycling’s Bike to Shop campaign alongside the Austin Heights BIA, which encourages people to bicycle to a number of supporting local businesses.

Strategic Transportation Plan Update 

How we move people and goods in, through and around Coquitlam is changing. So it is time to update our Strategic Transportation Plan to respond to these changes and plan for the challenges ahead by providing a new vision for Coquitlam’s transportation system for the future.

Interactive Regional Bike Map 

Coquitlam cyclists can choose their route 'on the go' with an interactive regional bike map on the CoquitlamConnect app  (available free through the App Store and Google Play).

Coquitlam updated CoquitlamConnect with a map of cycling routes in Coquitlam and throughout Metro Vancouver to provide more opportunities for residents to enjoy safe and healthy outdoor activities. 

Maps on the App

The new map makes use of cycling route data from Metro Vancouver municipalities that was collected by TransLink and HUB Cycling (a non-profit advocacy group). The map’s interactive features allow cyclists to filter routes based on their skill levels as well as whether the routes are off-street, on-street or on a major street. This digital map augments existing cycling map handouts, allowing for a more accessible and up-to-date digital option.

Bike Route Information Guide

Please refer to the Coquitlam’s Bike Route Information Guide (PDF) for more information on various types of bike facilities, cycling signs/markings and safe cycling tips. Free printed copies are also available at City facilities.

Tri-Cities Cycling Map

The Tri-Cities Cycling Map (PDF) is your go-to resource for local bike routes and connections. It also provides useful information involving bike lockers at SkyTrain stations plus the newly installed bike maintenance stations. Pick up your free printed version of the map at Coquitlam City Hall, recreation facilities and Coquitlam Public Library branches.

Did you know you can bring your bicycles onto buses and SkyTrain? Even if you work a long way from home, you have the option of completing a portion of your trip by bicycle. More information is available in the Tri-Cities Cycling Map, or visit TransLink’s cycling page.


Greenways are linear public corridors for pedestrians and cyclists that connect activity centres throughout the City.

Greenways are split into citywide and neighbourhood designations:

  • citywide greenways are long, continuous routes that connect major destinations throughout the City. They are comparable to arterial streets for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • neighbourhood greenways are shorter and provide connections to local destinations.  They are comparable to local streets for pedestrians and cyclists.

As industry practice shifts towards accommodating cyclists of all ages and abilities, we are transitioning to facilities that are physically separated from vehicle traffic.  

Most greenways will include multi-use pathways (MUPs) with boulevards, pedestrian-scaled lighting, and landscaping treatments depending on available right-of-way.  In more urban settings, we may need to provide more separation between pedestrian, bicycle, and other modes of active transportation.

Bike Maintenance Stations

Coquitlam has installed public bike repair stations at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex, and City Centre Aquatic Complex as part of its ongoing efforts to encourage cycling and be a bike-friendly community.


The maintenance stations feature:

  • Adjustable arms for elevating bikes
  • Air pumps
  • Tools needed for basic bike repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes and derailleurs including:
    • An array of wrenches (Allen, headset, pedal and box)
    • Phillips and flat-head screwdrivers
    • Tire levers

Issues at Shops

If you encounter a problem with one of the maintenance stations please call Facilities Customer Service at 604-927-6300.
