New York City has done a good job in recent years to encourage cycling instead of driving in the city. Bike lanes and paths have been created and new policies have been instituted to protect cyclists and pedestrians, but the city may be planning the biggest encouragement yet: a huge bike-sharing program.
The proposed program, created by Mayor Bloomberg and Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, would start with 10,500 bikes availabe for rent and then quickly spread to 49,000 bikes, similar in scale to the successful Paris Vélib’ program.
Other details like station locations, timing, etc. aren't available yet, but we'll be excitedly awaiting more news.
