As a special treat for Montrealers, BIXI Montreal will be offering free rides all day Sunday (8 a.m. to midnight): “We are extremely proud to offer this as a thank you to all the users who have supported us for the past 11 seasons. In our most recent survey, customer satisfaction was at 95%. So this is our way of thanking them for their loyalty to us and their commitment to sustainable transport,” said BIXI Montreal CEO Christian Vermette.

Preseason sales attest to enthusiasm for the service
Despite the poor weather, preseason sales of individual one-year memberships have increased by just over 5% compared to last year. An increasing number of companies are also getting on board, with group memberships going up 18%.

What’s new: AMIS BIXI Program
BIXI Montreal has launched a new program that encourages BIXI riders to help make bikes and docks more available for fellow riders and earn rewards, like free BIXI passes, along the way. BIXI riders will be able to access the rewards by earning points. Points can be earned by renting bikes from crowded stations and bringing them back to stations that need more bikes. This program rewards BIXI riders for their efforts while keeping them in shape!

Agreement with the City of Montreal
Last January, the City of Montreal once again demonstrated its confidence in BIXI Montreal by signing a 10-year management agreement. This agreement reflects BIXI’s status as a key partner in integrated mobility and shows that the City of Montreal is committed to making bike-sharing available to Montrealers.

BIXI to appear in 5 new boroughs, more equipment added
With these five new boroughs (Lachine, Saint-Laurent, Montreal-Nord, Anjou and Saint-Leonard), the BIXI network will be serving a total of 16 boroughs. In addition, 60 stations, 2,625 bike docks and 1,000 bikes will be added to the BIXI network. All these new additions are meant to both consolidate the network as a whole and meet the ever-growing demand of users.
