Bicycle Parking Stations

Bicycle stations are secure indoor parking facilities for bikes. They are protected with 24 hour video surveillance, and provide safe, long-term parking to protect your bicycle against theft, vandalism and bad weather. Only people who register to use a bicycle station can access the facilities. Most bicycle stations are close to public transit facilities, to make your commute more convenient.

Whether you ride your bicycle to public transportation, to work, or you simply need a safe place to park your bicycle during the day, a Toronto Bicycle Station has something for you.

  • Key card access lets you securely access your bicycle 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at your convenience.
  • Membership with the bicycle station is reasonably priced, and includes a 10% discount at participating bike shops in Toronto.
  • Members are eligible for long-term parking plan discounts.
  • New members receive a free Bicycle Station t-shirt and a free City of Toronto bike map.
