Our Bixi question

The bixi public bicycle rental thing is set to go in the spring and we have a question.

Suppose everyone who lives in the residential areas all take bixi down to a festival, overwhelming the Bixi bike station parking at the festival sites. Where do you park your Bixi if all the spots are full? You must lock it to a Bixi station to end your rental period.

If you can't lock it in a Bixi station, you definitely don't eant to just keep renting it! Letting the clock tick on a bixi rental gets expensive fast. Very espensive, very fast. The pricing structure is based around short rental periods.

So we wonder how the system plans to deal with destination-parking surges/overflow at major events?

And that's our Bixi question.

Actually, we also wonder when electic Bixis will appear? We just don't worry too much about this question.
