The dream of electric bikes is alive in Montreal, with another option soon coming to e-cyclists in the city.\nBIXI Montreal is now planning on making their electric bikes available as soon as the end of August.\nBIXI is also hinting at a lower price point than other contenders like Uber's JUMP bike.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nBIXI will soon be adding their new electric bikes to Montreal's already crowded transit market. After the recent launches of Uber's JUMP bikes and the new Lime electric scooters, it is BIXI's turn to woo Montrealers with their take on electric transportation.\nBIXI will be launching their electric bike service as early as the end of the month. The service is expected to launch by the end of August, or early fall. However, the date has not yet been set in stone as "applications for approval are still being reviewed," according to the CBC.\nBIXI launched their electric bike pilot last year, when a total of 60 bikes were tested on the Montreal market. Their bikes, which take four hours to charge, can travel about 60 k.m, and go as fast as 25 k.m./h.\nIn comparison, Lime bikes max out at 20 k.m./h and JUMP bikes can go as fast as 32 k.m./h.\nIn the initial pilot project, electric BIXIs and regular BIXIs were the same price. However, the CBC now reports that this will not be the case when the bikes are officially launched.\nView this post on Instagram En août, on va pique-niquer au parc?
