BIXI season 3

On Friday, April 15th, 2011, starts the third season of BIXI in Montreal. This year the BIXI network will be expanded to three new boroughs: Notre-Dame-de-Grace, Ahuntsic and Verdun.Also, the bicycle service gains more financial support as TELUS and Desjardins have joined Rio Tinto Alcan as associate sponsors.

Some of the novelties that will be available for BIXI users this year include: raised rental time limit for members from 30 to 45 minutes; a lower time limit between uses (from 5 to 2 minutes); a 72-hour access at 12 $; a new improved redistribution strategy (faster), due to an computerization of the system and a better bike placement within the network when transported; third language at the pay terminal (Spanish); the addition of an accepted credit-card (American Express).
