Bixi Toronto Rates are Rising, but just a little

We reported on Monday that Bixi Toronto had sent emails out to subscribers with the option of renewing their memberships early to lock in 2012 prices (ie. $95/year, plus tax).  It was not evident then what kind of price increases were in store for 2013.

I emailed Bixi and City Staff to find out what the price increase may be and found that it would only be $2 per year, and Bixi Toronto put a post up on their site about it yesterday:

BIXI Toronto will be increasing its membership fee of 2% starting April 1st 2013. The reason behind the rise is inflation and the increase of the price of gas and our operation fees. It is the first increase since BIXI Toronto launched.

The yearly membership will go from $95 to $97 (taxes not included) and the monthly membership will go from $40 to $41 (taxes not included). The first 30 minutes will stay included for each trip.

Accesses purchased at the station and usage fee for longer trips than 30 minutes will stay at the same price.

You want to try BIXI Toronto? It is possible to purchase a 24h access to the system for $5 or a 72h access for $12 by doing directly at the station and use the system without a membership. The first 30 minutes of every trip is included in the access fee.

Get your membership at the 2012 rate

To limit the impact of the rate increase, BIXI Toronto launches today a promotional campaign to allow users to subscribe or renew their membership at the 2012 rates. This promotion will be available until March 31st.
