Bixi Rolling Out for 3rd Season In MTL

If you are in Montreal right now you've seen it:  the Bixi docking stations are popping up all over the city. Sitting empty they have a strange sci-fi ghost town look.  But the bikes are supposed to be back on the streets by April 15th. Ottawa has also added itself to the  constantly growing number of cities using the Bixi system - the launch there is scheduled for May.

Bixi had an excellent year last year, and there still plenty of tweaking and tuning that could make it a really transformative part of a broader multi-modal transportation system on the island.  Let's see what this third season has in store.   (This pic taken in front of one of Mile-Ends many coffee establishments.)

This is a blog for news and views on the future of sustainable cites. A major revamp is in the works. Until then I am keeping this version up as an archive of my past writing.

You can expect occasional updates, but not with the same frequency as in the past.

You can also find my writing on urban redesign and sustainability in ReNew Canada, The Mark, Sustainable Cities Canada, WorldChanging, and other more specialized academic publications.

Info on my consulting work, c.v. and current research focus is all here.
