Yonge and Bloor will be the site of Open Streets TO's "Selfie Station", where participants can snap a self-portrait on their city's most iconic streets from a fresh perspective – where car traffic is replaced with people traffic. For those arriving without suitable Open Streets transportation, The Toronto Parking Authority's Bike Share Toronto program will be offering 1,000 free 24-hour passes to its public bikes.
