NYC Bike Share demonstrations going on all of October!
We New Yorkers bow to no one in our passion for walking around NYC–for fun, for exercise, for everyday transportation–but still, we couldn’t be more excited about the news that the Bike Sharing program is coming to our beloved city, and, fingers crossed, as early as next summer! Yes, there are still plenty of logistics to be worked out (during rush hour, will there be enough bike-rack space at popular office-area destinations?), but Bike Share programs has been hugely popular in Washington D.C., London, Melbourne, Miami, Paris and lots of other cities around the world, and if they can do it, we can do it better.
A Bike Sharing Program for NYC Starting Next Summer
Demonstrations Throughout October Introducing the NYC Bike Share Concept
Bike Share NYC on the Horizon: What’s in Store?
The plan is for Bike Share NYC to begin in the summer of 2012, so there are lots more demonstrations scheduled in October, including next week near the Chelsea Piers, in Washington Square Park, and in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Bike Share NYC is also asking for your input now, about as to where, exactly, the docking stations should be. You can cast your vote, get lots more information, and see a complete list of demonstrations and community board presentations at the DOT’s NYC Bike Share webpage.
