The ongoing saga over Toronto’s motorcycle parking issues continues.
According to a email tip we received, the City of Toronto is planning changes when it brings in pay-by-plate parking; it seems there will be 300 spaces set aside for motorcycles when the change comes in, and motorcycles will be able to park there at a reduced rate. However, we don’t know yet what happens when bikes park in car spots – whether or not they’ll pay car parking rates there is up in the air.
Those 300 spaces will be distributed between 25 locations throughout the city; bikes will pay 25 to 50 per cent of what cars pay.
Pay-by-plate parking won’t start until November 2014, and until then, it’s free for motorcycles to park in these 300 spaces.
