Hospitals and Royal York add Bike Parking before TTC Strike

It’s something that should happen all the time, but the threat of a TTC Strike brings out the carpool plans and the extra bike parking:

The Hospital for Sick Children has organized an internal electronic message board so staff – about 6,000 people – can organize car pools, said Helen Simeon, director of public affairs. The hospital is installing extra bike racks and encouraging staff to cycle to work. …

As part of the [Royal York] hotel’s contingency plan for snowstorms and transit strikes, car-pooling assignments are already drawn up according to where staff live and the shifts they work, and additional bike racks will be available for employees.
