Bixi Toronto reaches 600 Memberships

It’s taken only 8 weeks for Bixi Toronto to sign up 600 people to annual memberships!

They need to sign up 1000 by Nov. 30… so they’re already 60% there, however there is still concern that we won’t reach 1,000 subscribers:

“Our biggest problem is that people think [Bixi] is already happening, so they don’t need to sign up. We’re also struggling with people who think it’s a good idea, but don’t sign up.” – Sean Wheldrake, City of Toronto

If you’re wondering what the rate of signing up has been – it’s generally been as follows:

There are 69 days between now and November 30th… and if that 4.7 memberships/day rate holds, we’ll be at 924 come November 30th.

That’s bad news.  We HAVE to get that over 1000!

Have you signed up yet?  It’s $95 (+HST = $107.35) for an entire year!  That gives you unlimited free rides for an entire year (as long as your trip is less than 30 minutes).

There will be 1,000 Bixi bikes sprinkled all over the downtown core (click for map) at 80 Bixi stations… all between Bloor, Jarvis, Lake Ontario and Spadina.  The perfect transportation option for downtown zipping around.

After 4 decades (!) of Toronto considering the possibility of bike lanes on Bloor, Toronto City Council overwhelmingly voted (38-3) in favour of a 1 year pilot to collect data and evaluate a 2 km stretch of Bloor with bikelanes.

OH YEAH! Suburban Etobicoke councillor changes vote on Bloor bike lanes to a ‘yes’

More proof that politicians who actually take time to understand the issues are, in fact, better politician. “Riding it, you do realize a separate bike lane is infinitely safer than riding with traffic,” Campbell said. The councillor was leaning toward voting against the pilot project before his daughter started texting him, praising the bike lane […]
