The 2016 season has come to an end. Now it's time to see how we did! Launched in 2016, Free BIXI Sundays offered by Manulife gave thousands of people the chance to borrow a bike for free on the last Sunday of each month. Over 134,000 BIXI trips were taken on the six Free BIXI Sundays that took place from May to October, covering nearly 400,000 km city-wide. BIXI broke the records on Sunday, July 31, 2016, with more than 30,951 trips taken in just one day.

BIXI Manulife Valets were also on site at several stations around the city to help users rent a bike.

Different themed events took place on Sundays, thanks to Manulife and other generous contributers. Here are some of the highlights!
