AutoShare offers FREE BixiToronto Memberships as official welcome

TORONTO, May 5 /CNW/ - AutoShare is excited that BixiToronto has launched this week, and as part of our official welcome to this great New Mobility option, we are offering Free BixiToronto memberships to anyone who joins AutoShare by May 11th, 2011.

"We remember what it was like starting up, way back in 1998," says AutoShare president Kevin McLaughlin "and we want to give our new friends any support that we can. Bike sharing and car sharing go well together - they both provide alternatives to owning and driving private cars, and are part of a sustainable transportation system. Indeed, Montreal, London, Paris - these great cities have been transformed by the arrival of a program like Bixi. "

With AutoShare vehicles available within steps of over half the TTC's stations, the day is not too far off when every TTC station will become a 'transit hub', with multiple options like Bixi and electric carsharing available  to continue your trip in an environmentally friendly way.

AutoShare will also be purchasing corporate memberships for the use of its employees, and giving some free Bixi memberships to its existing members via a facebook contest.

"We would also like to issue a challenge today to companies across Toronto: Sign-up your staff for access to Bixi Toronto through their corporate membership program. It's a great, low cost way to meet your environmental commitments - and invest in your team."
