Bicycles

Cyclists will experience access restrictions and changes to parking locations throughout the Campus Core Revitalization 2019 project. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with this information to help reduce frustrations during construction.

General recommendations

  • Where safe, stick to cycling on city streets outside the project implementation zone.
  • Dismount your bicycle prior to entering the affected zone.
    • Try to park your bicycle prior to entering the affected zone to avoid creating additional congestion along the designated pedestrian routes, e.g. Pitman Hall Quad.
Bicycles parked and locked.

Bike parking on campus during construction

Ryerson is committed to sustainable transportation and to supporting our cycling community. A variety of bike parking options will remain available, however some designated bike parking areas are being temporarily relocated to prevent congestion in high-traffic pedestrian areas. Please review important details about parking bikes on campus during the construction period:

Locations and descriptions of bike parking during construction are included here in table and map form for your reference. In addition, the City of Toronto maintains several bike rings along the streets that surround the Campus Core Revitalization 2019 area that may provide good alternatives to campus facilities during construction.
