"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!

VIDEO: A DIY repair shop created by students for students

A great video introduction to U of T’s BikeChain from Global News (except there’s an ad that runs before it): ‘Bikechain’ was created in 2005 as a student project serving the University of Toronto student community. This DIY bicycle repair shop is based out of the St. George campus and is open to everyone on […]

MAPS! Helping cyclists avoid smoggy routes in Toronto and Montreal

  Amazing tool!  Played with it a long time.  Very telling that when you turn off the street map, high pollution levels still indicate where roads (and especially highways and the airport) are, and where the ravines (without highways) are. It is essentially a Google Map with an extra layer representing the average concentration of […]

NEWS: Bloor Bike Lanes Pilot Should Be a Council No-Brainer. Here’s Why It’s Not. 

An excellent piece in Torontoist about why a bike lane pilot designed to collect data about benefits/detriments and overwhelming supported by the community is getting static from politicians: There really should have been little to no debate about this 2.5 kilometre bike lane pilot project running along Bloor Street West from Shaw Street to Avenue […]
