Climate change has definitely affected the way people move around these days, which is evident in the bike-sharing popularity. And, to make it even better, BIXI’s offering discounted memberships in Montreal for 2020!
In spite of some stiff competition from rivals, such as LIME scooters and JUMP bikes, Montreal’s Bixi bikes grossed its highest numbers recorded this past season.
In 2019, an astounding 320,000 people utilised Bixi bikes within Montreal, and they rode an impressive 10 million kilometres in total.
As BIXI bikes were stored away for the winter, the bike-sharing company posted its income for 2019, smashing all previously known records.
BIXI’s end of year press release stated that over 5.8 million trips were documented, which is a notable increase of 8% in comparison to the previous year’s achievement. They further noted an 80% increased usage and 309% increment in sales during the last 5 years has made bike-sharing an intricate component of the city’s public transport system.
BIXI’s region of operation had increased to 60 new terminals, 1,000 brand new bikes, 2,625 stages, and the company’s extension to six districts which includes: Lachine, Montreal-Nord, Anjou, Saint-Laurent, Pointe-aux-Trembles and Saint-Leonard.
Its expansion across the island has obviously led to the company’s growth.
BIXI stated that because of the popularity of its electric bikes, more E-BIXIs would be rolled out in 2020 into the city’s system.
So, to make BIXI Bikes even more attractive, they’re offering a promotional early-bird price to users that sign up for next year!
From now through November 30, 2019, BIXI is providing a discounted one-year membership for just $84 — and that includes 45 minutes of travel per trip.
Montreal’s mayor, Valerie Plante stated that, again that year, Montrealers had proven their embrace for BIXI! It also demonstrated our need for proactive transit systems.
The 2020 BIXI season starts up again on April 15, 2020.
