Vancouver’s public bike share system – Mobi by Rogers – launched summer 2016. 

With bikes located across the network at secure, easy-to-use docking stations, Mobi by Rogers offers a convenient, fun, comfortable, flexible, and affordable way to get around.

Mobi is available by purchasing a pay-per-ride 24-hour, 30-day, or 365-day pass . The rates are best suited for short rides, while those looking for longer rides will find better rates at local bike rental shops .
