The colored lines symbolize the City of Burlington's future plan, last updated in 2007. The colors mean the following:

  • Pink - Complete Streets have accomodations for all forms of travel. This includes lanes for motorists and cyclists, landscaped medians, enhanced transit stops, and short crossings for pedestrians.
  • Dark blue - Travel Streets are meant to expedite transit vehicles. They do not have bike lanes; bicycles are diverted down parallel streets.
  • Green - Bicycle Streets give bicycles priority treatment with lanes and signage designed to maximize convenience and awareness of cyclists.
  • Orange - Slow Streets are in the downtown-core and are designed to slow down traffic for the benefit of pedestrians.
  • Red - Pedestrian Streets are closed to motorists and cyclists, unless walking their bikes -- only pedestrians are allowed.
  • Aqua - Bicycle Paths are paved and unpaved paths and trails for the exclusive use of bicycles and pedestrians. Motor vehicles are banned.
