Back in June 2011, city staff said that Bixi Toronto would break even financially at around 6,000 members.

Since it came online last [...]
Toronto News: 2011 Hero: Bixi Toronto [Torontoist] When Bixi Toronto launched in May, we were surprised at how quickly we fell for the sturdy, practical rides that popped up at solar-powered stations across the downtown core—turns out that the bike-share system appeals to even habitual TTC users and bike owners.

Advertising good, bikes bad [Dodgeville] Enough has been written about these stupid info pillars elsewhere that I won’t bore you with another diatribe against their design or the questionable process that resulted in the city being saddled with them in the first place. This one is in front of Carrot Common on Danforth and in [...]

We have to share this fantastic video made by Ryan Carter about how Bixi Toronto works. Great job Ryan! Thanks for agreeing to having your video on BikingToronto.
It looks like the weather is not co-operating for Bixi Toronto Launch Day, but as far as I know, the “Launch Event” planned for this morning at 11 on Gould just east of Yonge on the Ryerson Campus is still a “go”: The launch event will see over 40 GTA cyclists cross Yonge Street and [...]
