Jun 16: What do you think about e-bikes?

The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is in the final stage of its three-year pilot project to evaluate the use of power-assisted bicycles (also known as bikes or e-bikes) on roads and highways where conventional bicycles are allowed. On April 23, 2009 the definition of "bicycle" in the HTA was amended to include e-bikes.

MTO has invited TCAT, the Toronto Cyclists Union and other cycling groups to provide input on the equipment and operating requirements that should be included in the e-bike regulations. All TCAT News readers are encouraged to complete the Toronto Cyclists Union survey to give your thoughts on the issue. It takes less than two minutes to complete.
