20 New Bicycle Repair Stations Installed at TTC Subway Stations | Urban Toronto

One of the most common issues facing public transit riders is the “last kilometre” problem. While rapid transit is frequent, not all of the bus or streetcar routes leading from the stations are, so the final part of a commuter’s journey is often a long wait or a long walk… which can be made easier by bicycle. Bike Share and more bicycle parking in new condos and office towers are already helping to alleviate the last kilometre problem, and now the TTC is making hybrid commutes easier too. New self-service bicycle repair station and parking at Rosedale Station, image by Jack LandauThis week, 20 new self-service bicycle repair stations and six larger bike parking facilities were installed at stations on Toronto’s subway network, giving cyclists a means of storing and repairing their bikes during commutes. The installation of this new cycling infrastructure follows the September 2015 installation of 10 initial bike repair stations, and delivers on a promise made in the TTC’s 2016 Customer Charter.
