What is BIXI?
BIXI bikes are available at various BIXI stations across the Montreal downtown area. They are accessible 24 hours a day starting from the month of April till the month of November. Not only is biking an excellent form of exercise, but it is also an environment-friendly mode of urban transportation. The BIXI bike can be taken from any BIXI station and left at any BIXI station once the biker has arrived at his/her destination. There are 405 BIXI stations in Montreal, which makes a total of 5,050 BIXI bikes.A bixi station in Montreal. Image source:Flickr
