Concordia students, faculty and staff will soon be able to use the popular Bixi bicycle share service on the Loyola Campus. On March 19, Bixi announced its expansion plans for the 2013 season. To the delight of the Concordia community, a 23-bicycle station has been added at the corner of Belmore Avenue and Sherbrooke Street. 

“This is something that we have been pushing with the borough, the city, and Bixi management for years,” said Bram Freedman, vice-president, Institutional Relations and Secretary-General. “We are extremely pleased that our efforts have been successful and that the Concordia community has an additional healthy, environmentally responsible mode of transportation available to them.”

The entire 6.5-kilometre distance between the Sir George Williams and Loyola campuses is served by a dedicated bicycle path.
