While the ground is still warm from summer, fallen leaves can be heard crunching under bike tires: September has arrived in the city! This September, we’re inviting you to ride BIXI bikes all month with the theme “Montreal cafés.” Every part of Montreal is just bursting with lovely little cafés, and on September 29, you can rent a BIXI bike for free for any trip of 30 minutes or less since it’s a Free BIXI Sunday sponsored by Manulife.

Nespresso is opening its doors and holding a contest

As of September 9, the downtown Nespresso store (Crescent) will be handing out free coffees every Monday from 9am to 12pm. Did you know that the coffee capsules are made from aluminium and can be recycled? Even the coffee grounds are turned into compost. Enter our contest for a chance of winning a Nespresso in-store experience and a Nespresso machine!


From September 1 through 30, just fill out the form on our website to participate in the monthly themed contest. You could win:

  • A Vertuo Chrome machine + Aeroccino (milk frother) + Travel Mug ($400 approximate value)
  • A 1 hour in-store Nespresso Masterclass experience for 4 people  ($200 approximate value)*
* This private experience led by an Nespresso Coffee Ambassador will allow the winner and his guests to learn more about coffee, discover their Barista Talent and new limited edition coffee. Certain conditions may apply.

      Free BIXI Sunday will be back on September 29!

      The weather has been mild for Free BIXI Sundays since the beginning of the season—a good omen for September’s event! You’ll be able to ride for free in the late summer sun for trips of 30 minutes or less on the last Sunday of the month (September 29).

      // HOW IT WORKS //

      1- To rent a bicycle, download the BIXI app or head to a pay station at one of the 600 BIXI stations anytime between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m.

      2- Create your profile in the app or insert your credit card into the pay station, then select “One Way $0” and follow the instructions.

      *A $20 deposit will be held per bike.

      3- Enter the code you get after completing the transaction on the keyboard located to the left of the bike dock for the BIXI you’ve chosen.

      4- Head out to explore Montreal for 30 minutes max.*

      *Fees will apply if you spend more than the allocated time.

      5- Return your BIXI to any station and start another trip as many times as you want.
