Everyone loves the nifty station map feature in the PBSC app, which helps pinpoint available bikes and stations in real-time.
Bike Share Toronto phase 6th since 2011
On June 9th, 2020, Toronto Mayor John Tory and the Toronto Parking Authority (TPA) announced that the Bike Share Toronto program would expand for the 3rd time in 3 years under Shift Transit’s operational leadership. The expansion, featuring an additional 1,850 bikes, 160 stations, and 3,615 docking points. In total, the program will now span 625 stations, 6,850 bikes, and 12,000 docking points.
Our partner Shift Transit took over day-to-day operational management of the program in April 2017, including station installations, bike/station maintenance, bike/station repair, rebalancing, customer care, and marketing and sales. Since assuming operations, the system has shattered all previous location records, including:
- 188% increase in ridership between 2016 and 2019
- 96% growth in memberships
- 212% increase in the system’s footprint
The expansion will also spread the system’s reach to include 20 of Toronto’s 25 Wards, bringing the benefits of bike share to almost all corners of the city.
