Toronto is getting free bike rides in June.
Bike Share Toronto announced that, for the second year, it will be offering free rides to cycling commuters in the city on Wednesdays in June.
The bike sharing program has grown in popularity over the past year. In 2017, there were 1.5 million rides, and they hit a record ride day on May 27 of this year with 9,492 rides in a single day.
“We are committed to improving how people move around the city, and that includes investing in bike sharing in the city to make it easier to travel by bike,” said Mayor Tory in a release.
“Cycling is a great way to get around the city. I encourage all Toronto residents and visitors to the city to take advantage of Free Ride Wednesdays in June.”
While it is free to rent the bike, riders will be able to use it for up to 30 minutes only at no cost.
So far in 2018, Bike Share Toronto say they have seen record ridership in the first 5 months of 2018, with year over year growth of ridership at 100%.
Bike Share Toronto now has more than 12,700 active members. These riders have travelled over 25 million km since 2011.
