Making Mobi, Vancouver’s bike share provider, bigger and more affordable to more people is a great idea.
Many thanks to Vancity, City of Vancouver and Mobi by Shaw Go for the Vancity Community Pass, announced June 14 as a pilot project.
You can get a Community Pass membership HERE, and other locations too (shown on the web site).
For only $20, you can purchase a 365 Day Pass Plus membership with unlimited 60 minute rides. Each additional 30 mins +$3.
You may qualify for this pass if you have a
* Leisure Access Pass
* Red Compass Card
* Third party referral from a Community Partner
Now that the eastward expansion is well underway, Mobi members have more destinations they can reach with a ride. A big win for everyone.
And just for more Mobi fun, here’s @VanBikeShareBot, bringing you the latest Mobi stats every day, courtesy of @MikeJarrett_, who notes the numbers are approximate and very unofficial. Still a hoot, though.
Yesterday there were approximately 1906 mobi trips. That's the 53rd most this year.
Active stations: 148
Active bikes: 1472
Most used station: Stanley Park – Totem Poles
Least used station: 12th & Yukon#bikeyvr pic.twitter.com/7r8BLWxApt

With any luck, the Mobi you choose might be one of the Art Bikes, like this one from Priscilla Yu, whose Granville Island mural was featured on Price Tags a little while ago.
