City Hall bike station goes ahead

On Friday, council voted to restart construction of a bike station in the building’s underground parking lot, a project that gained notoriety when the mayor and his brother fiercely criticized the fact that it will include showers. 

Despite Mayor Rob Ford’s objections however, the project passed easily by a vote of 26-5.

Before the decision, Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker urged other councillors to respond to the growing demand for downtown bike parking. 

“If you want people to get out of their cars so there’s less congestion… you’ve got to provide secure bike parking,” he said in a speech to council. “My prediction, madam speaker, is the day you open that facility is the day that it’ll be sold out.”
