Statement - Canada Post vehicles to not park in bike lanes in City of Toronto

Move will immediately address safety concerns while we work with the City to find long-term solutions

TORONTO, July 25, 2017 /CNW/ - Canada Post understands the concerns raised regarding safety and bike lanes in Toronto. As a result, we are instructing our employees to not park in bike lanes in the City of Toronto. For pickups or deliveries, they are expected to find a safe location to park their vehicle. If a safe parking location is not available, our employees are expected to avoid the stop, continue on their route and return any undelivered items to the depot. Any problem areas are to be reported to their Supervisor so that a safety assessment can be immediately conducted to find the best alternative to serve the affected areas.

We are also asking the City to work with Canada Post and others to find long-term solutions to address this issue.
