Regis Gamma, an avid Bixi fan, has been waiting for this day since November 30, when he last rented a bike from the service."It's been great!" he enthused. "I use it to do everything, to go to work, to go out with friends, to go to restaurants, to go to the theatre, to go everywhere."
Other Canadian cities including Ottawa and Toronto are interesting in adopting the Bixi rental bike system.
Additional stations have been added in some boroughs, and at the Parc Jean Drapeau on Ile-Ste-Hélène.
