The other issue that speaks to parking bicycles at the GO station is the desire for multi-modal bicycle transportation. Having commuted by GO train, getting to the local station was the easy part. What I wanted was to take my bike with me to Toronto to get around in the city.

Via Rail is making steps to improve on this facet of transportation (bike train), but problems will remain until transportation networks allow cyclist to travel WITH their bikes. Despite their efforts, VIA has a long way to go. I can't travel with my bicycle from Montreal to Ottawa or Ottawa to Toronto because those trains don't have "checked baggage," and my disassembled bicycle in its bag (or case) is considered too large for carry on baggage.
