Tino caught early glimpses of the BixiTO bikes yesterday, waiting for the official launch this morning.
The bikes are turning heads and people are trying to figure out how it works. Will it be popular enough to grow, let alone be sustainable? That's yet to be seen, but every city with Bixi so far has been successful and growing; Toronto is bike-friendly enough that it will likely be successful here as well.
Later today myself, Jonathan Goldsbie, and Gian Carlo Crivello, CEO of Public Bike System Company, will be hosted by the Star's Corey Mintz at his house (as part of his column, Fed, by Corey Mintz. It promises to be a tasty lunch and discussion.
