King Street Pilot Study Survey

The City of Toronto has created a survey for the King Street Pilot Study.  The survey must be completed by March 20 and takes 10 – 15 minutes to complete.

Why not do it now? Here is the Survey Link.

The King Street Pilot Study is about testing out how to redesign King Street to achieve three broad city-building objectives: moving people on transit more efficiently, improving placemaking and the public realm, and supporting business and economic prosperity.

In this survey, the City of Toronto wants to hear your feedback about three key aspects of the pilot being explored in this phase of work:

1. How should we evaluate success of the pilot project?
2. What is your preference of three different block design options being considered?
3. Where along King Street should we undertake the pilot?
