Bike Racks

Secure bicycle parking for students and staff is key to encouraging active and sustainable transportation. Bicycle racks have been installed at TDSB schools since the Active Safe and Sustainable Transportation Charter (ASST) was approved in 2013.

In recent years, the TDSB has received funding from the City of Toronto to ramp up these efforts. The partnership with CultureLink and their Bike to School project has brought cycling education programs to numerous schools and helped students discover the personal and community benefits of cycling.
