PBSC Urban Solutions the new supplier, an international company will replace the electronic components in the current system so that the existing pay stations and docks are fully integrated with the new system. The deal with PBSC is for the next five years.
Last summer the provincial government committed $4.9 million to expand Bike Share Toronto’s network through a partnership between Metrolinx and the TPA, with 20 per cent of the funds going to the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area.
At the time Metrolinx said the the new fleet will be set up near popular transit stations to give commuters the option to use bikes as part of their travel journey.
TPA says that this expansion is a “significant step” toward the authority’s goal of creating a world-class bike sharing system in Toronto.
