Motorcycle and Scooter Parking Pilot

Overview

These will be the signs erected at 30 pay-and-display downtown locations. The challenge during this 12 month pilot project is whether or not vehicles will respect this signage and park elsewhere.

The City of Toronto along with the Toronto Parking Authority is introducing designated on-street motorcycle and scooter parking zones in certain existing locations operated with pay-and-display machines on a pilot basis to provide safe, convenient parking for motorcyclists. These parking zones will be defined by line markings on the pavement and signage. The purpose of the pilot is to encourage motorcyclists to park legally on city streets and to park within the pay-and-display area in a controlled fashion to maximize available parking.

Parking in these designated locations will be free of charge to motorcycles and scooters, consistent with the City of Toronto’s existing practice with respect to locations solely operated by way of pay-and-displays machines.

Pilot Scope and Proposed Parking Locations

Approximately 300 motorcycle spaces have been allocated in existing pay and display locations. The pilot project will focus on areas in the downtown core that were observed to have a significant number of motorcycles or scooters parked regularly.

Toronto Parking Authority staff will monitor the sites throughout the year to determine usage and compliance. The program will be evaluated over a one year period with final recommendations in the Fall of 2015.

These are the 30 pay-and-display locations at which the year long pilot project will be implemented, allowing for 300 parking spots in total, for motorcycles and scooters:
