Public Transport in Montreal

Last year we featured the launch of a public bike system in Paris which enabled visitors to loan a bike, ride round the city and they ‘give it back’. Now, a similar system has been launched in Montreal Canada.

Their Public Bike System is made up of a number of ‘Docks’ around the city which each house 6 aluminium bikes. Innovations include a centralised web based inventory so that people can locate the nearest available bike online, solar powered docking stations and electronically tagged bikes.

Payment can be made using credit, debit or special ‘member’ cards and, like other similar systems, you use your bike and then drop it off at any docking station with a free slot. More details at:
