One of the lines from this Guardian.co.uk video that struck me was,
“..anybody that knows anything about these schemes, is that, in order for it to work you need enough docking stations. In London at the moment there’s 316 compared to 1600 or something like that, in Paris.
“So it’s not going to work if there aren’t enough docking stations.”
So, take note city councilors looking to be elected – if we’re serious about this we need more Bixi bikes, more docking stations and a connected, safe, efficient bike lane network.

The decision to expand the Bixi project will be made by the new council after the October 25th municipal election. More on that: BikingToronto article Bixi in Toronto by Bikeroo (June 27th, 2010).
