BIXI is cycling as a real means of urban transportation. Available since 2009, BIXI is one of the best ways to enjoy nature, be active, and visit the landmarks in Montréal without any hassles and at a low cost. The system is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 3 seasons a year, from May to November. This service enables citizens and tourists to borrow a bike from a station, travel to their destination and return the bike to any other station across the network. BIXI currently provides 400 stations and 5,000 bikes distributed in 8 of Montréal’s boroughs.
