TTC launches pilot project

TORONTO, May 27 /CNW/ - The TTC is making it easier and much more convenient for cyclists to use public transit. Beginning mid-June, bike racks will be installed on 98 buses on 6 bus routes for a one-year pilot project.

Cyclists will be able to place their bike on the rack, which is located on the front of the bus, and then board the bus and ride to their destination.

As part of Bike Week festivities on Monday, May 30th, TTC Commissioner Adam Giambrone, TTC staff and members of Toronto’s Cycling Committee will demonstrate how the new bike racks operate.

This will be a great photo opportunity for the media to show its viewers and readers how easily the bus racks work.

The pilot project will include the following routes:

  • 7 Bathurst
  • 29 Dufferin
  • 47 Lansdowne
  • 161 Rogers Road
  • 98 Willowdale-Senlac
  • 310 Bathurst Night Bus (effective mid-summer)
