TO didn't only remove the painted jarvis bike lane. It will be replaced by the Sherbourne bike route a few blocks east.

If anything, the jervis street vote also co-incided with a vote to establish a new network of separated bike lanes. And this is in Rob Ford's toronto.

Almost lost in the hubbub over Jarvis was the fact that council also voted to push ahead with Toronto’s first network of separated bike lanes. That means cyclists will be able to travel on lanes that are not just painted lines on the asphalt, like those on Jarvis, but fully separated from car traffic.
