Electrically Assisted Bicycles

This summer, come test out new self-service electric bikes in Laval. For a walk downtown or simply to discover the network of bike paths in Laval, opt for one of 40 electric bikes.

Available at the following locations:

  • Cartier Terminus
  • Montmorency Terminus
  • Terminus The Carrefour
  • Intermodal station of Concorde

This project was made possible thanks to financing from the Canada and Quebec governments as part of the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund.

HOW TO USE THE ELECTRIC BIKES IN SERVICE?

  • By purchasing a single access card at the transaction terminal;
  • By downloading the app to your smartphone to unlock the bike;
WHAT ARE THE COSTS?
  • The cost for subscribers is $ 20 per month and $ 40 for the season. The first 45 minutes of daily use are free. Subsequently, the user will have to pay a fee of $ 2 for each additional 30 minutes.
  • For the occasional user, it will cost $ 2 for the first 45 minutes and $ 2 extra for every 30 minutes.
HOW TO RELEASE A BIKE AT THE TERMINAL?
  • Choose your electric bike and swipe your activation key, access card or smartphone directly on the bike screen;
  • When the light on the bike comes on, remove the bike from the station;
  • Enjoy your ride!
HOW TO REPORT THE BIKE TO THE TERMINAL?
  • When the ride is over, return the bike to any of the 4 stations to end the rental.
  • Push the bike to the anchor point and wait for the confirmation message that will appear on the handlebar of the bike.
  • If the bike station is full, it is possible to secure the bike with the auxiliary locking system by selecting this option from the bike handlebar menu.

Good to know: Users can stop along the way to race and use the auxiliary locking system so that no other user can use their electric bike. After their stop, the users have only to slide again their card or their telephone on the screen of the bicycle to resume the road.

IS IT ACCESSIBLE TO ALL?
  • You must be 18 years old or older to use e-bikes;
  • The user is solely responsible for using the bike as a reasonable person, in accordance with the law. In particular, it is the responsibility of the user to wear a helmet at all times during the use of the bicycle, since the wearing of the helmet is mandatory for users under the Highway Safety Code.
CAN WE USE THE OPUS CARD TO ENJOY ELECTRIC BIKES?
  • No, e-bikes are not included in the OPUS tariffs. The activation key remains the easiest tool to use a bike.
ARE ELECTRIC BIKES COMPATIBLE WITH CYCLOBUS?
