For the time being, cyclists will not be able to use the bike rack on many of the TTC's buses
Cyclists may want to plan alternate routes if their commute involves a TTC bus.

Toronto’s cyclists may want to rethink their daily commute if it involves a TTC bus. 

The Ontario Ministry of Labour has ordered the TTC to not allow cyclists to use the bike racks on many of its buses. The order comes after the ministry noticed that bikes with large accessories could block a driver’s sight lines when placed on one of the racks.

The issue affects the Nova Articulated bus and the Orion VII bus. The former is pictured above and is a relative recent addition to the TTC’s fleet. The latter is the hybrid-electric bus that can be seen servicing many of the TTC’s most popular routes. Together the two bus types make up the majority of the TTC’s bus fleet.

The TTC promises to seek an “engineered solution… to ensure continued and safe use of bicycle racks on its buses.

In the meantime, cyclists that want to board a bus will be invited to bring their bike aboard—that is, as long as there is room on the bus to accommodate the bike.
