Montreal Transportation: Bixi

Updated: Oct 18, 2019

When most international students consider Montreal’s public transit system, they think of hectic busses, luxurious trains, and intricately designed subway systems. However, these students seldom consider that, during the summer, there is another method of transportation that is more efficient, dynamic, and sweat-inducing – the bike.

In Montreal, biking is a method of transportation unlike any other due to BIXI, a public bicycle sharing system. Launched in 2009, BIXI has revolutionized public transportation by being recognized as North America’s first large-scale bike sharing system.
