The City of Toronto has launched the temporary CurbTO program City-wide to help local retail businesses better manage lineups so that customers are able to safely maintain physical distancing while waiting to enter stores, or to pick up goods at the curb.
"The Ontario government has announced that all retail stores with a street entrance may provide curbside pickup and delivery services effective Monday May 11, 2020. While a number of different strategies (i.e. scheduled pick-up appointments, pre-payment) may be used to mitigate against line-ups, the CurbTO program is poised to expand the Curb Lane Pedestrian Zone initiative to support retail businesses that may need to stage customer queues on the sidewalk in order to assist with maintaining physical distancing requirements for retail patrons and for pedestrians."
Please get in touch with the BIA if you see any issues that need addressing, and please note that we are currently reviewing a CurbTO installation for the LCBO on the West side of Spadina North of Lonsdale.
