Bixi bikes are free TOMORROW!

Bixi bikes are one of my favourite things about living in Montreal. From April to October getting around our beautiful city is so easy (and fun!). Brad and I share a Bixi membership, so the odd time we are biking together (date night!) we just pay for the second bike. But this Sunday, Bixi bikes are FREEEE!

Here's the deal:
  1. Go to the pay station at any of the 460 BIXI stations between 12:01am and 11:59pm. Download the BIXI app or visit the station map to find a station near you.
  2. Insert your credit card, select “One-way $0” and follow the instructions on the screen.
  3. After completing the transaction, type in the code you received on the keypad on the left side of the docking point of the BIXI bike of your choice.
  4. Go out and explore Montreal for up to a maximum of 30 minutes.
  5. Return your BIXI bike at any station and take out another as many times as you would like!
Head's Up: Make sure the green light comes on after docking the bike. You have to wait 2 minutes before taking out another bike.

  1. I think I saw somewhere that it's for one 30 minute ride, which probably changes plans quite a bit if people are hoping a day of biking!

    1. 30 minute rides, but an infinite number of rides allowed! So just like Bixi always operates, you dock your bike after 30 minutes to avoid additional fees, and then grab another bike ;)
