Bicycle lockers protect your bikes against theft, vandalism and inclement weather. The lockers are designed to hold one bicycle each, as well as gear such as panniers, locks, lights, etc.
Users will receive one key that will only open one locker. Each locker has a unique lock and key to provide maximum security.
The locker is designed to fit the standard proportions of a bicycle but will not fit all non-standard bikes nor all additional items like rear baskets and large rear panniers.
Bicycle lockers are available for $10 (+ HST) per month for a minimum of 4 months.
Payment can be made by mail (cheque or bank draft), or by phone (Visa or Mastercard only). Make cheques payable to the City of Toronto.
Staff may be available for appointments during limited times, to process payments at the City Hall Bicycle Station (credit card, debit card, cash, money order or cheque accepted). Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Bicycle lockers are available at many destinations and transit stations.

Your application will be processed and an auto-response email will be sent, confirming receipt of your application. If there is a wait list for your first choice, the e-mail will inform you of your place on the wait list. When your turn comes you will be notified and given TWO business days to confirm your interest in the locker offered. The locker will then be reserved for you until you can make an appointment at the Bicycle Station at City Hall to sign a contract, pay, and receive the key.
Lockers are available on a first come – first served basis. If there are no lockers available at the time of your request, your name will be added to a waiting list until a locker becomes available. Once a locker becomes available you will be contacted by the Bicycle Locker Program. You may request to have your name removed from the waiting list at any time.
Locker users have the opportunity to renew their locker agreements. All users will be sent an automatic renewal notice by email, one month before their locker agreement expires. If you would like to renew your locker agreement, respond to the email notice, requesting an appointment to pay over the telephone.
Renewals may also be mailed to EYCC, with either cheque or money order:

Toronto, ON M4C 5R1
In-person payments can be made, on a limited basis, by appointment only, at the City Hall Bicycle Station, using cash, cheque, Visa, Mastercard, or debit card.
All renewals must be completed before a locker agreement expires.
