At the Toronto Transit Commission’s St.Clair West subway/bus station, a bike shelter was installed.

This T.T.C bike shelter is considered the first official “bicycle shelter” and  it was funded by the City of Toronto’s Clean and Beautiful initiative at a cost of about $35,000 and took a year to procure.

Prior to the installation of this new bike shelter, bicyclists used the City of Toronto’s three (3) Post and Ring Bike Stands to lock up bikes.

Councillor Joe Mihevc (St. Paul’s West) Vice-Chair of the Toronto Transit Commission stated:

“One only has to go to any subway station and see where bicyclists lock up their bikes. They’re all over the place, and more would come if they had the convenience of having safe parking,” he said.

“My hope,” he said, “is that this becomes the model in that we develop some kind of working group between the city and the TTC to have some kind of multi-year strategy and bike lockers and the Bixi system integrated into public transit.”
