Corner de Maisonneuve/Stanley Streets... heart of downtown Montreal. This BIXI station is strategically located providing easy access to these bikes for locals and tourists alike. They're very popular with the locals because it's really another form of public transport and you get to be outdoors and benefit from the exercise. Tourists can rent them out for an hour and tour the city at their own pace. There's also a "Metro" station just right around the corner and a handful of Montreal's premiere fashion shops / department stores and deluxe hotels are also a stone's throw away. And, conveniently right in front of my favorite Montreal men's fashion clothing store, MENS (1150 deMaisonneuve W. ). In my opinion, it's expensive here but well worth it: quality fabrics and workmanship and exclusive styles ... and not too trendy. An item bought here will usually last me for many years. You know what they say: you get what you paid for !
