After only 18 months, Torontonians have taken Bixi bikes on over one millions trips around the city. Today, Melanie Brayne, the lucky one-millionth rider, received a prize by Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong (Ward 34, Don Valley East) at an event at City Hall.
She received a one-year membership to Bixi and a Samsung Galaxy Note. Her prize-winning ride was last Friday morning, a 13 minute trip to work.
“This is honestly the best way for me to get around economically, financially, environmentally. It’s great,” Brayne said who uses the Bixi system two or three times a week.
