BIXI Toronto will begin relocating 17 stations starting this Saturday, November 26, 2011. On-street stations are being moved to prevent damage during snow removal. Stations with lower usage will also be relocated.

The City of Toronto and BIXI will place these existing stations at new locations outside of the current service area. Originally covering 8 square kilometres, BIXI users will get access to stations now covering 12 square kilometres, an expansion of 50%. The station at Phoebe Ave and Spadina will also grow with 24 new docking points added.

BIXI Toronto has reached 3936 members after only 6 months of service and riders have made 372,417 trips. BIXI Toronto is also reporting that the average number of trips per day has seen little decrease even as outside temperatures continue to fall. Toronto’s bike-share system is up and running year around, the first system open all year in Canada.

    Glad to see the service inching ever closer to my neighbourhood. I’m hoping for more stations in the spring (if not sooner, of course).

    I live in Parkdale and I was really excited to see the CNE station installed.

    B’bye CNE station.
