Recording | BYXE Campaign

As the City continues to move forward with the implementation of the Active Transportation Plan, a top priority has been to enhance education and awareness to support and promote walking and cycling. In the summer of 2019, the City launched the BYXE campaign which is geared toward making traveling on Saskatoon streets safer and more comfortable by encouraging safe traveling behaviours and interactions between cyclists, pedestrians and drivers.

The BYXE campaign strives to build a culture of active transportation by normalizing cycling and promoting safe and courteous interactions year-round.

The campaign includes a web page (saskatoon.ca/byxe) with cycling tips and how to travel on the different types of bicycle facilities in Saskatoon. The imagery shows how cyclists are encouraged to position themselves on streets, shared roadways, bicycle lanes and multi-use paths. The webpage also includes tips on how to use the bike racks on Saskatoon Transit buses, bike parking tips, and how to register a bike with Saskatoon Police Service.

The winter version of the BYXE campaign reminds cyclists of the overall key messages and incorporates the same theme, but the primary focus is on promoting cycling as a viable means of transportation during the winter months while providing winter-specific messages and imagery.

The priority winter-specific key messages focus on trip planning, appropriate attire, winter bike maintenance, riding to the conditions, and having fun while doing so. The messaging is similar to the City’s Winter Bike to Work Day initiative which will not be held in 2021 due to a large portion of the population now working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
