BIXI Toronto is a public bike system. It serves as a alternative means of urban transport. The system is accessible to everyone, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 12 months a year. Using a credit card, riders are able to take a BIKI bike when they need one, and leave it at any station upon arrival at their destination. The 80 BIXI stations in Toronto are made up of bike docks and a pay station equipped with solar panels that power the entire station. To reduce energy consumption to a minimum, all station components go automatically into "sleep" mode when not in use. Touch the screen of the pay station, enter your code on the keypad of the bike dock or simply insert your BIXI key into the reader to immediately "wake up" the station.
