How Kristyn Wong-Tam plans to save BIXI Toronto

Developers to cut the number of parking spaces in new residential developments could save Toronto’s ailing bike share program, says councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam. Current city rules allow builders to trade parking capacity for auto share spaces or ring-and-post locks, and Wong-Tam wants BIXI stands added to that list.

In a member’s motion to be heard at city council next week, Wong-Tam will ask transportation services and city planners to investigate the feasibility of expanding BIXI using developer’s money at zero cost to the city. The new stands could be funded out of a pool of money and placed where there’s the most demand for bike infrastructure.
