Bixi did well, better than Paris.

"Don't steal bikes, bro."

The Montreal Gazette is reporting that the city’s Bixi bike share programme enjoyed a successful first season.  Unlike in Paris, where 80% of its Vélib bikes were stolen or vandalized, Montreal seems to have escaped relatively unscathed.  Montreal had 5000 bikes with 400 docking stations, and although no official stats for the programme’s success have been released, organizers are declaring the inaugural year a success.

The Bikes will be pulled out on Nov. 15, to return in May.
