Toronto Set to Launch Bike-Sharing Program

BIXI, a bicycle-sharing program that first launched in Montreal, is due to launch in Toronto in May.

Itir Sonuparlak reports that the program already has 1,200 people signed up for annual memberships:

"Inspired by Vélib, a public bicycle rental system in Paris, the City of Toronto will install 1,000 bicycles in 80 different locations for public use. Although the locations of the stations are not yet determined, the system is meant to be an extension of the current public transportation system in Toronto."
