Recently, I took out a Hamilton Bike Share (SoBi) bike and noticed that it had received so much use that the seat was starting to wear out, with a large crack right through the centre. I was annoyed for a second, but then took a look at the bike number: 037, "O'S CLOTHES".
Yes, this was one of the first 200 bikes that have been on the street since January 2015.
It is truly amazing that the SoBi system has been such a fantastic success that the bikes are starting to wear out. Started with only $1.6 million in Metrolinx seed funds, SoBi provides by far the best cost/benefit ratio of any form of public transit.
