A station at Woodbine Beach would be awesome!
There are 2 nearby stations now, one by Kew Beach/Kenilworth and another at Coxwell and Lake Shore.

But there is certainly room/demand for more!

Is there a roll-out plan available somewhere for Bikeshare?
Not any of which I am aware.

This year's expansion is supposed to focus on The Junction/High Park, Midtown, and East York, as well as the entire Gerrard East corridor.

There've been stations in Etobicoke since last year along the Martin Goodman.

They can keep expanding outward, but at some point the built form and lack of cycling infrastructure will result in increasingly diminished returns. I might put some along the Humber River trail, but they would probably see more benefit by focusing on infill for the next round. We'll see how much is yet to come this year, but there could definitely still be more stations throughout the east end and midtown, as well as in the Junction. And it doesn't always come through in the maps, but there are probably lots of sensible infill sites throughout the city.

I meant central Etobicoke, close to the subway stations.
