If you live in Montreal then you probably adore BIXI bikes. If you haven't heard of them, then you've probably been living under a rock. Luckily, all you have to do is go outside to check them out. They're everywhere.
Basically, BIXI bikes are bikes that you can rent. There are stations located all over the city, so wherever you are you'll be able to get one. What's so great about them is that you can pick one up at point A and return it at point B. You don't have to bring it back to your original destination.
Now that the weather is nice and people are outside, BIXI bikes are a perfect way to get around and enjoy the outdoors at the same time! They're a great, affordable way to get around in Montreal.
They're already really inexpensive. Trips only cost $3! But luckily for you, there are even more deals that will help you use this service for even less money! Here are some great deals you can get this year with BIXI.
Save money by buying your tickets in bulk instead of one-by-one. This is a classic way to save money. Luckily for us, there is a brand-new reduced rate that gives you a pack of 10 one-way passes. And it only costs $25!
On the last Sunday of every month from May to October, you can ride BIXI bikes completely free! How amazing does that sound? Leave your money at home and enjoy transport free of charge.
If you're a full-time student or a citizen over the age of 65 and you are registered on the BIXI platform and have an OPUS card then you can enjoy trips at a discounted rate. Instead of paying $3, you will pay $2! That doesn't seem like much, but trust me it adds up.
From March 15, 2018, to June 30, 2018, members of the McGill community can get a 20% discount on the BIXI bike-share program. You just have to insert a special code and you can get a monthly pass at 80% of the full price. Check it out!
