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:
Bicycle lockers for rent from City Toronto
TTC & GO Transit connections
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!
