"New Mobility Hub" Launch Tomorrow!

I got an email late last week (thanks Margaret!) announcing the launch of the newest Bikeshare Hub at Exhibition Place. It’s dubbed a “New Mobility Hub because in addition to all the pretty yellow BikeShare bikes, there is also bike facilities like racks and lockers, connections to the TTC, GO Transit and Autoshare, a WiFi Hotspot, and more!

It’s like Toronto’s version of a BikeStation but with a cliched new-lingo name. Let’s make sure that everyone knows about it… especially those people that work or live within biking distance of the Ex (most of downtown, depending on how far one wants to bike…), so they can skip using their cars or the TTC and ride, ride, ride!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The awesome intermodal model, the “New Mobility Hub” is launching at the Ex on Tuesday (April 25th). Located near the Dufferin bus, Autoshare, the waterfront trail, Liberty Village, Exhibition Place, the Ricoh Coliseum and Ontario Place, the HUB will include:

Bikeshare Hub
Bicycle lockers for rent from City Toronto
Bike racks
TTC & GO Transit connections
Taxi hotline
WIFI Hotspot
weather and tourist info
Dufferin bus with bike rack 2 blocks away
Autoshare 1 block away

Come on out to the launch and show your support!

OH YEAH: The Origin Story of Sunnyside Bike Park – An Advocacy Success Story

In early 2011, the High Park BMX jumps were removed as they were on the Seneca Wolf Clan’s Serpent Mounds in the south east corner of the park. A few members of the Toronto Off-Road Bicycle Association (TORBA) approached the new Ward 13 Councillor, Sarah Doucette to ask what the City was going to do […]

NEWS: Should cyclists be allowed to ride through stop signs?

Obviously, yes.  Just like drivers are.  Spend any time at a stop sign and watch how many cars do “rolling stops” if there ar no other moving vehicles near the intersection.  Spoiler alert: almost every driver does rolling stops, just like cyclists do. In fact, when I learned to drive in Newmarket, a stop sign […]

SHOP: Brand new bike shop a shrine for serious cyclists

Well, the headline is a little stupid… it should read “…shrine for roadie cyclists”, as “serious” doesn’t only apply to those willing to drop thousands of dollars on a bike. It applies equally to the tens (hundreds?) of thousands of Torontonians who are serious about using their bike to get around the city – to […]

OH YEAH! Steamwhistle expands its network of bike repair stations

Oh yeah!  BlogTO has picked up the BikingToronto post last week about this.  Steamwhistle deserves lots of toasts. As Biking Toronto reports, over the last year or so the beer company has installed similar stations at the Brick Works, the Duke of York pub, and most recently in front of Bike Sauce. They’ve also been […]

NEWS: Why not make biking on sidewalks legal in the suburbs?

I tend to agree with the main concept here… that suburban arterials need bike infrastructure badly… but cars go SO fast on those roads, it’s impossible to feel safe even in a bikelane that is just paint. A physical barrier (curb, bollards, etc) is needed, or an cycling addition on the side of sidewalks.  Many […]
