Toronto, Ontario – From now until May 11, 2011, those in Toronto joining car sharing company AutoShare will also receive a membership in the city’s new bicycle sharing program, BixiToronto.

“We remember what it was like starting up way back in 1998, and we want to give our new friends any support that we can,” said AutoShare president Kevin McLaughlin. “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.”

AutoShare will also purchase corporate memberships for its employees and will give some free Bixi memberships to its existing members via a Facebook contest.
