Vancouver's bicycle revolution about to shift into a higher gear

In the Vancouver version, there will be about 2,000 Bixis -- that's bike and taxi together -- docked in about 200 stations spread around the downtown core, Kitsilano, Fairview Slopes and Mount Pleasant, perhaps even as far out as Commercial Drive and the University of British Columbia. People will pay about $78 a year to belong to the system and get to ride a bike for free for the first 30 minutes, or pay a few dollars for the time they ride after that.
