With spring fast approaching, the Bixi bike-sharing program announced it will add 725 electric bicycles to its fleet and 83 more electric stations, bringing the city's total to 1,905 bikes and 153 stations. In addition, there are also 7,270 non-electric bikes and a new improved pricing model, which is simpler and more flexible for users.

The new pricing model will allow many citizens to access BIXI's service at an affordable and attractive price, while paying only for what they actually use.

The new annual subscription for regular users will cost a $99 ($89 if users subscribe between March 15 and April 15), while the price of a 30-day subscription will drop to $19 from $36.

"I applaud BIXI Montréal's efforts to adapt the offer, making it even more attractive. More than ever during this crisis, Montréal's bike-sharing service has proven to be an ideal mode of transportation, and the enthusiasm for self-service and electric-assisted bicycles is here to stay. The City of Montreal continues to invest in optimizing BIXI's service to effectively serve the public, as well as new areas. We are already looking forward to seeing you on April 15! " said Eric Alan Caldwell, who is responsible for urban planning and mobility on the City of Montréal's executive committee.
