As previously reported by CBC, roughly only 1% of bike thefts in Toronto end with the property being returned to its owner.
Two weeks ago the King Street pilot project went underway to help alleviate streetcar congestion along the route. Now the TTC is test running the new Line 1 subway extension using “ghost trains”. The new extension is meant to give those in the York Region a long awaited subway route into the city.
