Over the month of August, the 70 new Bike Share Toronto stations that will be put in place across the city will bring the total number of stations in Toronto to 270 with 2,750 bikes and 4,700 docks. Designed to enhance Toronto’s public transit and transportation network, the new Bike Share locations will be in close proximity to TTC subway stations and streetcar stops.

Bike Share Toronto, operated by the Toronto Parking Authority, now has almost 9,500 active members and served up 1,191,746 rides over the last 12 months. Riders have travelled a total of 16,847,127 kms since 2011, offsetting 3,200,954 kg of Co2 emissions.

On August 23, 2016, the Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario and the City of Toronto announced a new federal-provincial funding agreement to keep Torontonians moving through investments in the repair, modernization and expansion of the city’s transit and active transportation networks. The governments announced that multiple infrastructure projects would get underway in Toronto thanks to the signing of an agreement with the Province of Ontario that brings the new federal infrastructure funding program – the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) – into effect.

PTIF will provide funding for up to 50 per cent of eligible projects, with the City providing matching funds. Through a new ridership-based allocation, Toronto is eligible for a federal contribution of $856 million.
