Toronto - 20% off yearly membership w/Presto card

Deal Link:
Savings:

https://www.bikesharetoronto.com/presto

Could be especially useful in light of recent TTC service issues

20% off yearly membership w/Presto card

Used to be 40%, then 30%, now 20%. They did just add a bunch of new docking stations recently.

Not only did we embarrass Marky Mark, we let down the Funky Bunch.

PRESTO card holders receive 20% off their first year of Membership (full price $99 + tax).

Got my hopes up there for a second (although I will gladly renew at full price, it's a great service)

@seshwan
I just create a new account each year using the same Presto card . Works every time!

When was it 40% off??

Also, worth reading the restrictions on this service. i.e. the super duper annoying 30 minute intervals before getting hammered with charges.

It was actually 50% off in 2016. Then later 40%

I'm very happy with the 1/2hr redock requirement. Otherwise people would keep bikes out too long and it'd be harder to find them. Remember it is for short, commuter trips. Not day -long pleasure rides. 1/2 hr is ample time to reach the next dock.

Worth it. Love to use it every year and no mess of picking up your bike where you left it off. Use it in place of the TTC as it's more reliable. :facepalm: And use it in place of Uber/Lyft as a cheaper alternative.

Most cars are pretty respectful. The only ones I come across that ever give me trouble are taxis. Most roads I ride on have bike lanes though, except Spadina uptown and Dundas downtown.
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

Ride in a predictable fashion, obey the rules of the road, and you'll be fine.

Like all people said, most cars are respectful. Just be aware of others getting of their cars and use your bell to make them aware. We also have dedicated bike like routes you can take ie. Harbord.

I actually think the most scariest thing are the streetcar tracks. ALWAYS ride over them perpendicular or avoid them at all if you can. Ive seen so many people get injured riding on them parallel and smacking their face on pavement. I've ridden them in the rain one-time and slipped all over the place.

Other than that, you will get used to it and well worth it!

I love this service. I wish they'd remove a few bikes though (not racks) I find because I live a little further out (lakeshore & windermere) my rack is always full and i have to head back east to sunnyside to dock it.
