Many of the new locker locations will be at transit stops.
"We want it to be similar to the Kiss-n-Ride program, only this is Bike-and-Ride. We want people to know that bikes are not the poor brother of the City and are in fact a major part of our environmental plan, and a major part of our transportation network."
The most immediate new installations will be at Rouge Hill GO station and Cedarvale Park near the west entrance of St. Clair subway station. There will be six new lockers at each location.
The City will be installing more than 90 new bike lockers across the city in 2007.
Currently, the City has 82 lockers in use, with about 54 people on a waitlist.
Lockers are available for $10 plus GST per month, for a minimum four-month duration and each locker has a unique key.
Since July 2006, the City has installed lockers at nine locations:
•City Hall (Elizabeth street)
•371 Bloor West (at Spadina)
•Toronto Island Ferry Terminal
•Metro Hall (King street)
•St. Lawrence Market
•OISE (252 Bloor Street)
