Transportation: Bike Sharing Programs

I noticed a bike sharing program started this fall in here in DC, but Montreal's programs appears to be a well planned an thoughtful approach to providing a comprehensive and sustainable business. BiXi is short for Bike Taxi

Its use of solar power bike stands, RFID chips to track a bike where abouts, as well as bikes designed to weather the harsh Canadian climate all point to the establishment of a successful solution that provides an alternative transport option for urban environs.

How it Works
