Electric bicycles are classified as "motorized recreational vehicles" under Toronto Municipal Code, Chapter 608. Therefore, they are NOT permitted on bike paths or foot paths in City of Toronto Parks.

They are only permitted in parks that allow vehicular traffic, excluding service roads and areas posted prohibiting public vehicular access.

Motorized vehicles (including e-bikes and snowmobiles) may not be used on park multi-use paths. If a motorized vehicle is used on a park path, the rider/driver may be fined by a bylaw enforcement officer. The Waterfront Multi-Use path, Don Valley & Humber Multi-use paths, are all considered parklands. The new railpath & Hydro corridor trails are considered linear parks.

Toronto Municipal Code - Chapter 608 - Parks (Toronto Municipal Code Chapter to prohibit and regulate activities in City parks)(see definition of "Motorized Recreational Vehicle" at beginning of bylaw, also 608-30)

If you wish to file a complaint about an e-bike in a City of Toronto multi-use path, please contact Municipal Licensing & Standards Waste & Parks Bylaw Enforcement.
