Media Advisory New City of Toronto bike locker location supports sustainable transportation on the waterfront
  
Join City of Toronto staff and members of the local community as they open the Bike Locker Program’s newest location at the Toronto Island Ferry Terminal. Bicycle lockers provide excellent, secure bicycle parking by improving protection from theft, vandalism and inclement weather.

Date: Thursday, February 22
Time: Noon
Location: Toronto Island Ferry Terminal

At 12:05 p.m. Ted Tyndorf, Chief Planner and Executive Director of City Planning, will cut the ribbon to officially open the new bike locker location.

More than 1.2 million passengers travelled through the Toronto Island Ferry Terminal in 2006. With its close proximity to the car-free community of the Toronto Islands and to Union Station, this important bike locker location demonstrates the City of Toronto’s ongoing efforts to develop a sustainable transportation system. There are now eight bike locker locations around the city with more lockers to be installed this year.

The Toronto Bike Plan recommends the development of enhanced bike parking facilities that offer higher levels of security and better protection from inclement weather as a way of encouraging cycling.
