Under a new partnership with the Toronto Parking Authority, Metrolinx will spend $4.9 million (in Canadian dollars) on bikes and docking stations to expand the Bike Share Toronto program. The effort will more than double the size of the program's current network, Metrolinx officials said in a press release.The Toronto Parking Authority will source and deploy the bikes and docking stations, while Metrolinx will own them. Most of the planned expansion will be in Toronto, although the agreement also provides for some bikes and stations to be set up in a host municipality within the Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario, areas. "We know that cycling generates a broad range of economic, environmental, health, social and other benefits, which helps build healthy, more active and prosperous communities," said Minister of Transportation Steven Del Duca.The partnership supports Ontario's Cycling Strategy, which is aimed at encouraging the growth of cycling and improving safety for cyclists, Del Duca said.
