This morning, the bike sharing program Bixi officially launched in Toronto! Toronto joins Montreal, London, Melbourne, Washington, Minneapolis (the most bicycle friendly city in America) and others with bike sharing programmes.
Bixi is still in its infancy, but the principle of economical short-term bicycle sharing (anything 30 minutes or less is free if you have a subscription!) has been wildly successful around the globe. The relatively small service area and number of stations will likely grow as subscriptions and corporate sponsorship increase.
