5.26.13 … Love, love, love Bike Share Programs! Kudos, NYC! …

NYC, bike share programs, Citi Bike, kudos:  Love, love, love Bike Share Programs! Kudos, NYC!

 

New York City officials plan to launch the long-awaited bike-sharing program on Memorial Day, nearly a year after it was first slated to open, and amid the launch of similar systems in cities around the world.

The New York program bears the name Citi Bike, in homage to the corporate sponsor, Citigroup, that has provided most of its startup funding. And like several of the cities that have preceded New York into bike-sharing – including Washington, London and Boston – this city will use its own customized version of the model pioneered in Montreal.

About 6,000 bikes will be distributed across 300 solar-powered stations in Manhattan and Brooklyn. A 24-hour pass will cost $9.95.
