Drop by Science World this weekend and try out a public bike share system!

The City of Vancouver will be demonstrating a self-serve rental station for bikes. Bring a helmet if you want to ride!

The station is actually from Bixi, the City of Montreal’s award-winning public bike share system. Trying it out and getting feedback is the City of Vancouver’s first step in exploring how to implement such a system here.
