Grab a friend and how them the fun and convenient way with bike share.
Free Ride Wednesdays is available to all, whether you’re a CAA Member or not.

5) Return your bike to any station to end your trip. To obtain a new code and ride again, select “I Have a Pass” at a station kiosk and insert your credit card, or use the PBSC/CycleFinder app. Take as many FREE 30-minute trips as you like while your 24h Access Pass is still active.
Did you see our announcement about the introduction of e-bikes to our fleet?
Mayor John Tory confirmed last month the deployment of an e-bike pilot program, effective immediately. You incur no extra cost to rent an e-bike and their usage is included in Free Ride Wednesdays, meaning you can explore Toronto with pedal assist at no cost every Wednesday during the month of September.
Please make sure to wear a helmet while riding an e-bike – it’s the law. Click here to learn more about Bike Share Toronto’s fleet of e-bikes.
