The app also highlights gaps in the GTHA's transportation network, from cycling to transit.

My commute is any cyclist’s dream—I ride 100 metres on a side street, and then it’s a straight shot down Sherbourne—one of Toronto’s only proper cycle tracks—to the beautiful and cyclist-friendly Martin Goodman Trail. From buffered bike lane to protected cycle track, it’s better than what most commuters have to put up with in Toronto these days.
So when I recently had mechanical difficulty that put my bike out of commission, I thought I was in trouble. Big trouble. TTC trouble.
I decided to get a Bike Share Toronto membership, despite knowing my little green Opus would only be in the shop for a few days. It seemed like a good emergency measure so I could be sure I wouldn’t have to hop on an overcrowded, under-air-conditioned subway.
And then I fell in love with an app.
