Bixi Fiasco

Those Bixi bikes that Montreal is so proud of and has put millions of taxpayer dollars is going to cost Quebec taxpayers even more. The Bixi agency is apparently 42 million in debt. This sinkhole should be let lose and the parking spaces returned to drivers and merchants, who actually pay taxes. This scheme is supposed to be very successful but it perpetually loses miney. let the private sector take it over or let it close done. The City and province should stop throwing good money after bad.

Not only that, but since apparently many people only want to ride the bikes downhill in Montreal, the bikes that are not used for the return uphill journey have to be trucked back up, thus defeating all that environmental gain of bikes.
