Another record-breaking season for BIXI with 9 million trips taken in 2022
Offering its services on the Island of Montreal, as well as in Longueuil and Laval, BIXI saw a 55% increase in ridership and a 30% increase in the number of members, breaking records beyond all initial predictions.
As undeniable proof that more and more people are considering the bike-sharing service for getting around on a daily basis, as well as for leisure, the number of individual users increased by 52% in one year, reaching almost half a million users (437,140). The previous record of trips recorded in 2021 (5.8 million) was also broken this year with over 9 million trips between April 13 and November 15.

BIXI is successful in more and more cities
While more and more Quebeckers are using bikes as a mode of transportation, BIXI has seen unprecedented enthusiasm for the bike-sharing service in other cities where it operates as well (Longueuil, Laval, East Montreal, Westmount, and Mount Royal). Furthermore, BIXI is wrapping up the 2022 season with a strong increase in ridership and the number of members in Laval and Longueuil, two dynamic cities that support eco-friendly solutions to help address current traffic issues.
BIXI is also currently in discussions with a dozen other cities in Quebec to extend its service offering as quickly as possible and develop its network on the north and south shores of Montreal.
"We are pleased to report that more and more cities are interested in BIXI, while the suburbs are now seeing the same success as Montreal in terms of ridership. Providing an eco-friendly, active mode of transportation, BIXI is contributing to the transition to more sustainable transportation and easier commuting in cities throughout Quebec. In addition to having a positive influence on active mobility in the Montreal region, BIXI remains a global leader in bike-sharing services, with both regular and electric bikes, making tangible actions that work towards the country's carbon-neutral goals by using solar and electric energy," said Christian Vermette, General Manager of BIXI Montréal.
