Bike Box Bike Boxes help make cycling safer
Toronto’s first bike boxes were recently installed at the intersection of two of the city’s most popular bicycle lanes at Harbord Street-Hoskin Ave and St. George Street. Designed to make cycling safer, a bike box is a pavement marking that provides cyclists with a waiting area in front of cars at red lights. Bike boxes can help prevent conflicts between motorists turning right and cyclists travelling straight. In total, five bike boxes will be installed along the Harbord/Hoskin Ave.and College St. bicycle lanes this fall. Learn more about Toronto’s new bike boxes.
Electric vehicle Help Shape the Future of Electric Vehicles
The City of Toronto is looking at ways to incorporate electric vehicles into its sustainable transportation plan. Before we can adopt this new technology, there are a variety of things to consider – from the number and location of charging stations, to the impact on our electricity grid and the need for EV-friendly policies. Tell the City what you think we should consider. Share your thoughts by posting a comment on-line. Comments will be used to propose an electric vehicles strategy to City Council in 2011.
BIXI bike BIXI Toronto reaches membership goal
With 1,000 members signed up for BIXI Toronto, the City has reached a key milestone in the creation of a bike share system. When BIXI begins in 2011, Torontonians and visitors will have access to 1,000 bicycles via 80 fully automated and conveniently located BIXI stations in the downtown, with potential to expand in future years. Operating like an extension of the public transit system, the bikes are intended for one-way trips of less than 30 minutes and will be able to be picked up and dropped off by members at BIXI stations in the city, 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week.

This station can be bet described as a hybrid format of adult contemporary, international and ad popular music. In a sense it may, be compared to compared random radio format, but mystuffnow has three dedicated day parts. These day parts include a morning, evening and overnight separate music selection. The morning and afternoon have a selection of classic rock and current hot hits. To make the station more unique a new track, or tracks from the overnight day part have been added to make the station stand out from traditional stations that broadcast locally. The overnight day part is called “After Hours” and mimics the general principals of a quiet storm programming style where as there are fewer commercials and the music is more adult in nature, not just in lyrics but the music is more unique, offering international and slower tracks. This is meant for relaxation or whatever you may be doing in the late night hours. This station is run by computerized traffic software. At any moment a live deejay can broadcast and a morning show or news programming is possible, all playlists are run automatically. One positive of this is the fact that the software ensures that all artists get paid their royalties and this station avoids any fines for digital media issues. Update: Mystuffnow is currently off the air.
