Cycling and Transit

Together bikes and transit can cover great distances.

Bikes on the TTC

Bicycles are allowed on TTC vehicles during weekday non-peak hours, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and 7:00 p.m. to 6:30 a.m., and anytime on Saturday and Sunday at the discretion of vehicle operators.

Most TTC buses are equipped with bike racks. The racks hold two bikes each, and can be used at any time.

Bike parking at transit stations

The City of Toronto provides bike lockers at key transportation hubs and destinations. Each locker is designed to hold one bicycle and bicycle gear, such as panniers, locks, and lights.

The City of Toronto also operates two Bicycle Stations, providing secure indoor bike parking at Union Station and Victoria Park Subway Station.

The Toronto Union Station Bicycle Station consists of two secure bicycle parking rooms on the east side of York St. -- one just north of Bremner Blvd. and a new, larger room just south of Front Street. The new facility features 160 bike racks, a washroom, a change room, and a shower with towels provided. The smaller facility features 80 bike racks and a washroom/changeroom.

The Bicycle Station at Victoria Park Subway Station offers secure, 24-hour bicycle parking with 52 secure bicycle parking spaces available on two-tier racks.

Bikes on Toronto Island ferries

The City of Toronto operates ferries to the Islands and as of 2008, bicycles are permitted on all ferries all year long.

Bikes on GO Transit

GO Transit is also working to make it easier to combine biking and transit travel across the Toronto region by offering new amenities and services.

Bike Train

The Bike Train is a non-profit initiative to connect cyclists in Toronto with tourist attractions in the Niagara region by providing bike racks onboard select VIA Rail departures from Union Station to Niagara Falls. Regular VIA Rail departures may also accommodate bicycles. Via Rail's policy for oversized sports equipment, including bicycles.
