It’s been a long time coming, but another city is about to implement the Montréal-based Bixi bike program, furnishing its citizens with access to affordable (and cute!) bikes for rent.  And this time it’s happening in… Toronto!

This is a particularly sweet victory in light of that city’s recent election of a particularly loathsome mayor who, along with some of his cynical and two-faced cronies, appear to actively oppose any mode of transportation that doesn’t spew copious amounts of CO2 in the air.

Cyclists in Toronto have been gunning for a bike share program for years now, following the lead of cities like Montreal, Minnesota, and Washington DC (not to mention Paris, London, and Barcelona).

And more bike-share programs are set to launch over the coming months in Ottawa (also Bixi), Brooklyn NY, and Miami.  Could Regina be that far behind?  Probably.

Anyway, isn’t it nice to hear a bit of good news for a change?

Oh yeah, and suck it Rob Ford!
