Public Bicycles System Company (BIXI Toronto) has provided the City of Toronto with a network of bikes throughout the downtown core. BIXI Docking terminals allow users to pick up, and drop off bicycles from location to location, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The system includes 1,000 bikes, 80 BIXI terminal locations with 1,500 docking points in Toronto's downtown core. View a map of BIXI station locations on the BIXI Toronto website.
The Public Bike System Company (PBSC) is the organization behind the concept, development and operation of award-winning BIXI – which operates bike-sharing systems on three continents and is the first large-scale bike sharing system in North America.
Designed to complement public transit, the BIXI bikes are intended to be used for one-way trips of less than 30 minutes. BIXI bikes can be picked up or dropped off at any of the 80 downtown bicycle docking terminals 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Anyone can purchase a 24-hour pass as a 'casual user' by simply swiping their credit card at a BIXI docking terminal. There is no trip fee if the bicycle is returned to a docking terminal within 30 minutes. A fee is charged for any trip longer than 30 minutes.
Regular users of the system may choose to become a BIXI subscribers, by purchasing a monthly or annual BIXI key. If you use BIXI often, BIXI keys are more convenient than having to swipe your credit card and agree to the terms and conditions for the use of the Bike at the start of each BIXI trip.
