A report on Bikeshare initiatives for 2021 is going to next week's Parking Authority Mtg.

It would appear TPA management is dedicated to doing as little as humanly possible. Sigh.


From said report:

At this time, Bike Share is not budgeting for a 2021 expansion as the five-year expansion plan established by the 2016 Feasibility Study has now been completed.
Upon assessment of the pilot expansion areas and the adoption of the e-bike program, Bike Share Toronto will bring forward recommendations to further improve the cycling network, including improved connections to public transit.


Also, they are holding off on increasing the trip time to 45M.

In 2020, as part of Bike Share Toronto's 2020 expansion, TPA launched two pilot programs consisting of eight (8) stations outside the central bike share system - one in Ward 6 (York Centre) and one in both Ward 24 (Scarborough-Guildwood) and Ward 25 (Scarborough-Rouge Park) - to measure and encourage suburban usage of the service and to explore deployment beyond the boundaries of the Toronto and East York district. The Ward 24 and 25 pilot area includes Highland Creek trail and the waterfront trail to the Rouge GO station. The Ward 6 pilot area includes the Finch Hydro Corridor.

The pilot programs were launched in August 2020 and will run for a full year. During the pilot, TPA will monitor and measure ridership, trip length and pass sales. This will allow TPA to evaluate whether an extension in the overage threshold from 30 minutes to 45 minutes is required outside of the core. TPA will bring forward a report to Toronto Parking Authority Board after the pilots are complete and reviewed as at this time, there is insufficient data.


This notwithstanding some interesting trip time data:

*** Ahem, the inclusion of data from September 31st could be problematic.

How are they capturing trip times? Do they count if someone keeps signing in and back out?

Ah, Toronto. You can always count on our city government to disappoint.
