The CycleLoan Program
The newest and coolest bike fleet program – CycleLoan! Created specifically for the workplace, the concept behind the CycleLoan Program is simple: provide employees with free access to bicycles during business hours thus promoting active modes of transportation at work.
The turnkey program is the brainchild of SustainMobility to address the growing demand to create a bicycle friendly culture in the City of Mississauga. The program is sponsored by the Region of Peel and Gallant Bicycles.
Since its launch, the program has been a great success! Employees are using the CycleLoan bicycles for local business meetings, exercise, and recreation. Team up with SustainMobility to implement a low cost, low maintenance, single or multi-site CycleLoan Program for your employees.

CAA Bike Assist
Biking has always been a popular recreational activity and has been gaining popularity as a commuting option for individuals traveling to and from work. To support the growing trend, CAA has introduced its “Bike Assist” roadside assistance service to all CAA members with no additional cost.
If you run into a problem that cannot be fixed on the spot, CAA will transport you and your bicycle to wherever you need to go. It’s available to CAA members 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Bike & Ride
Bike racks are available on all Mississauga Transit & Brampton Transit buses. Each rack can hold two conventional bicycles with wheels that are at least 16 inches (41 cm) in diameter. No additional fare is required. Customers are responsible for placing bike on rack.
Bike-share programs offer a community of users a pool of bikes to borrow and return on a daily basis. There are at least two bike-share programs currently operating in the City of Mississauga. The University of Toronto at Mississauga has a student bike share program and the City of Mississauga operates a bike share program at the civic centre for city employees.
Students can go online to see the inventory of bikes available through the UTM Bike-Share Program or to sign-out a bike for the day.
City of Mississauga employees can book a free bike from the gym on the fourth floor of the civic centre. For $5 a year, city employees who cycle to work can also use the shower facilities at the Civic Centre gym.
