The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is soliciting public comment regarding the reassessment and update of the regulatory and policy framework surrounding Power-Assisted Bicycles (e-bikes), as well as feedback on the development of a Cargo E- Bike Pilot Program.

Proposal details

MTO is strongly committed to promoting the highest standards of safety for all Ontarians who travel on our roads, including drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians. Trends and technology are evolving, with an increased popularity of active transportation vehicles such as e-bikes and cargo e-bikes.

As a result, MTO is soliciting feedback to inform the development of a regulatory and policy framework surrounding e-bikes and examining a potential cargo e-bike pilot program.

We invite you to review the details of these proposals and submit comments for MTO consideration.
