Motorcyclists in Toronto may have to start paying for parking again.
If budget chief Mike Del Grande and councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam have their way, it’ll be the beginning of the end for the free ride after a council meeting today.
According to the Toronto Sun, Del Grande thinks it’s unfair that the city allows two-wheelers to park without pumping money into the city coffers, saying the city shouldn’t be taking any loss of revenue at all. He also says the free parking is unfair to owners of four-wheeled vehicles.
As a result, Wong-Tam and Del Grande are asking council to vote on a motion to end the free parking program today.
Of course, this doesn’t mean your free parking could end as of Thursday morning, should this pass; bylaw changes like these typically have to pass more than one reading. But if you live in TO, you should get on top of this; you can find a list of councillors to email here.
