Toronto's bike share program is expanding to 10 new neighbourhoods

Torontonians who use bike sharing to get to work will be happy to know there's several new neighbourhoods from which they can do that. 

A new bikeshare expansion was announced by the city today, adding new stations both in existing neighbourhoods, as well as expanding outward to new areas. 

There will be 105 new stations, and an addition of 1,250 new bikes as part of the expansion, bringing the total to 468 stations and 5,000 bikes.
