Cycling is one of the most popular activities in Toronto. Riding a bike is not only healthy and environmentally friendly, but it also helps Torontonians travel more easily when traffic is congested. Don’t have a bicycle? No problem. You can rent one with Bike Share Toronto.
Bike Share Toronto offers 6,850 bikes at 625 stations throughout the city. It is easy to find a bike station via the PBSC app or Google Map.
If you plan on exploring Toronto by bike, you can purchase a day pass for $7. There are also hourly, monthly, even yearly rates available (see photo). There are payment kiosks at each station or you can download the PBSC app to your phone. If you purchase via kiosk, you receive a five-digit code that unlocks the bike. If you use the app, you need to scan the QR code on the bike’s dock to unlock it.
When returning the bike, find any station with an open dock. Then, insert the bike until the light on the dock turns red, makes a notification sound, and locks the bike. One thing to note is that you have to return the bike to any station after every 30 minutes. Even if you are using a day, month, or year pass, this step is mandatory. However, you just need to use the app or the kiosk at the station to confirm that you are holding a day, month, or year pass to take the bike out again and continue your journey. This ensures that everyone in the city has a chance to use a bike
- If you use a bike longer than what is specified, you will be charged $4 for each 30 minutes.
- Failure to return the bike will result in a $1,200 fine.
