What a weird story and turn of events. After the City decided to replace the Toronto Island bike rental service (seemingly without letting the current rental company bid), the prospective new rental company pulled out, and now everything is going back to the way it was, except the original company sold some (or most, if what I’ve heard is correct) of their old stock and now have to replace it all.
MAJOR DEVELOPMENT: Once again we want to thank Toronto and all the people who have commented on this thread, and shown your support to our families in this trying time.
Today we were informed by the Parks and Forestry Department that the other bidder has “retracted their Proposal for the Bicycle Rental Concession at Toronto Island Park and…the City is prepared to recommend to the relevant City authorities that (we) be considered as the Preferred Proponent for the operation”
In other words, WE WILL BE BACK to serve you on the Island!
