Bike Share Toronto launched in May of 2011 with a network of 800 bicycles and 80 stations located throughout downtown Toronto. It consists of a fleet of specially designed, heavy-duty, durable bicycles that are locked into a network of docking stations. Today, there are 1,000 bicycles and 120 stations, and by the end of the summer of 2016, the system will have nearly doubled in size.
The system is intended to provide Toronto residents and visitors with a convenient and fun transportation option for getting around the city. Bike Share Toronto is available for use 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, except during inclement weather conditions that might make the system unsafe for our customers and our field services team.
Bike Share Toronto is a project of the Toronto Parking Authority.
