Bike Share Toronto

Bike Share Toronto’s system launched in May of 2011 with a network of 800 bicycles and 80 stations located throughout downtown Toronto. Intended to provide Toronto’s residents and visitors with an additional transportation option for getting around town, Bike Share Toronto makes active transportation simple, fast, and fun!

You can purchase 24-hour or 72-hour passes from any Bike Share Toronto station kiosk using a credit card. You will receive a ride code to unlock a bicycle and begin a trip. Ride codes are good for only one trip. For subsequent trips during your 24-hour or 72-hour pass period, swipe your credit card at a kiosk to receive a new ride code at no extra cost.

Parking

Parking is available at the host hotel, on the Ryerson University Campus, through the Green P municipal network and other private lots at additional daily rates. Parking in downtown Toronto can be quite expensive so it’s best to research options in advance of your arrival.

Another alternative for long-term parking is Park'N Fly located by Pearson Airport.
