Living in Toronto has been getting pricier and pricier, and the city’s rap for being expensive extends to its Bixi memberships. BlogTO ran the numbers on bike-sharing programs here and in other North American cities, and it turns out Toronto pays more than everyone—even the notoriously expensive New York City will have a cheaper program when it launches in a few months. (Annual subscriptions for both cost $95, but riders in the Big Smoke have to return their bikes within 30 minutes, while New Yorkers will get 45 minutes of gratis pedalling time.) According to the fancy colour-coded chart, Bostonians pay $85 a year, Montrealers $80.50, Chicagoans $75, and Houstonians a mere $50. See the chart [BlogTO] »
