2013: The Year of Bike Share
NPR trumpets that it’s finally “a good time to be a cyclist in America.” Bike share programs are picking up pace across North America, with more than 15 major US cities launching in 2013. Getting to a critical mass of programs is essential—each city will feature unique implementation and tweaks to the model; we’re in the midst of a grand experiment, and tracking the progress of all these programs across the country will be essential.
It’s an exciting time to be a fan of bike share. I’ll take two wheels any day of the week. It’s all about that gas mileage.
