On July 11, Toronto Mayor John Tory, and Acting Toronto Parking Authority President Robin Oliphant jointly reiterated their commitment to expand Toronto’s Bike Share system.

The 2019 expansion will add a total of 1,250 new bicycles, 105 stations and 2,292 docking points to the Bike Share Toronto network. With this expansion the system will grow to 465 stations in Toronto, with a total of 5,000 bikes, and 8,550 docking points.

“We’re proud to support the continuing expansion of Bike Share Toronto so that residents and visitors will have a way to cycle around our city that is convenient. We will continue to push for the expansion of Bike Share to new neighbourhoods because we know it leads to increased ridership and membership for this important service,” said Mayor John Tory.

As in previous expansions, the new Bike Share Toronto locations will connect Toronto residents and visitors to TTC subway stations and stops, to enhance Toronto’s transportation network and act as an extension of the public transit system.

Bike Share Toronto stations are being placed in new neighbourhoods, stretching out of the downtown core. They will be located as far north as Yonge Street at Lawrence Avenue, west to the Junction and High Park Neighbourhood, and as far east as Victoria Park and Kingston Road.
