If I have one word to say about my trip to Montreal, that word would be BIXI, bikes for rent at hundreds of stations around Montreal (bike + taxi = BIXI). You pay $5, take one out, do your thing, lock it up at another station at your destination. Take another and another all day long and pay for the time you use between BIXI stations. Comfortable, theft proof, easy riding, widely loved, efficient and green… public transportation heaven.
