New bike racks will appear starting Monday on another 18 TTC bus routes.

This will bring the number of cyclist-friendly bus routes to 89, which is over half the city’s routes.

TTC spokesperson Danny Nicholson said each rack can hold two bikes at a time. Placing a bike on the rack takes about 30 seconds, and has not delayed bus schedules, he said.

“We encourage people to use their bikes,” he said. “With all the routes that now have our bike racks, they can put the bike on the rack, hop on the bus, and away you go.”

Bicycles are also allowed on subway trains, except during the morning and afternoon rush hours. Routes to get bike racks on Monday are: 17, 25, 303, 144, 34, 305, 100, 169, 54, 354, 57, 116, 67, 167, 86, 224, 68 and 320. Bike racks started to appear on TTC buses in June, 2005; all TTC buses are expected to be equipped with them by 2010.
