A quick update for you riders in Vancouver seeing as spring is nearly here. By now you've noticed we've got approx 300 spaces (for multiple MCs) designated for MCs just after intersections throughout the city. However, further space is a challenge. We've been told by a city official that a change in the BC Motor Vehicle Act to permit parking at the end of a block (just before crosswalks) on city streets would be supported.
So we've met with Transportation Minister Mary Polak on two occasions and the ball is currently rolling to get the change made. We are not going to do a rally this year; rather we are going to work with the city to get more spaces and show them the pricing needs adjusting.
In the meantime, what you can do to support the effort is continue to spread the word, get your friends to go to the http://www.mcparking.ca/ website and enter their email addresses so we can keep in touch. You can join the conversation with the FB group here and follow us on Twitter @mcparking. Write council and keep up the good work!
