A few weeks back there were big concerns that the City of Toronto would be dropping support for the Bixi bike sharing program, and the plug would be pulled. According to Cycle Toronto, last week the City announced that it had bought out BIXI Toronto’s capital loan, taking ownership of the program, and had vested the program with the Toronto Parking Authority. The move puts the bike sharing program on a solid financial footing.
Excitingly, the City also plans to expand the system. Next year, the City plans to add 22 stations and riders can have their say as to where they would like them placed? Cycle Toronto has launched an online crowdsourcing tool that enables anyone to select locations and vote on their favorites.
