The City of Toronto is working towards charging motorcycles for parking, while simultaneously trying to find ways of reducing traffic congestion. If rejecting hypocrisy is your thing, have a look at how I avoided paying for parking while working downtown, in the summer of 2013.
April 19, 2013 – the day I started hiding under the Gardiner
May 8, 2013 – hiding among the bixi bikes behind a construction zone
May 9, 2013 – in case anyone’s concerned that I was blocking too much sidewalk space…
May 16, 2013 – parking on the Harbourfront
May 17, 2013 – still hiding under the gardiner

For my next three jobs I would be fortunate enough to work in places outside of the core, with parking lots just steps away from the entrance/exit. From my present office I can remote start my car in the dead of winter, or check on my bike from the window throughout the day. A lot changes in three years. Hopefully the City of Toronto will get it’s act together.
