Free Motorcycle Street Parking in Toronto

Toronto Motorcycle Parking free on street

There is currently a 2005 By-law which exempts motorcycles from being charged for on-street parking. 

The Following is from the City of Toronto Website regarding their motorcycle parking pilot program

"The City of Toronto along with the Toronto Parking Authority is introducing designated on-street motorcycle and scooter parking zones in certain existing locations operated with pay-and-display machines on a pilot basis to provide safe, convenient parking for motorcyclists. These parking zones will be defined by line markings on the pavement and signage. The purpose of the pilot is to encourage motorcyclists to park legally on city streets and to park within the pay-and-display area in a controlled fashion to maximize available parking.

Parking in these designated locations will be free of charge to motorcycles and scooters, consistent with the City of Toronto's existing practice with respect to locations solely operated by way of pay-and-displays machines." 

(Toronto, 2015)

As a result of our lobbying back in October 2013, Council removed the direction to stop the motorcycle parking fee exemption when pay-by-plate is implemented. Despite this, staff are still moving forward with plans to start charging bikes.
