Montreal's new bike-rental program
Ho hum, the city's providing a bike for under your bum.
For the price of this program, they could just give everyone an econobike who wanted one. (say for a tiny service charge)
Then there would be no bike thieves, because anyone could have a cheap bike for almost free.
And Stationnement Montreal (Parking Montreal) wouldn't be further expanding their tyrannical rule over the travelers in our wonderful city.
And to give people an incentive to follow some road safety rules, in order to get the free bike they have to get a bicycle drivers license. Oops, there we go ruining another great idea!
See photos of the actual rental bike, called Bixi here.
Ok, I admit, it's a good idea.
