Shared Bikes Cometh

New, 2 comments

More fun with press releases from abroad. From Paris, Gavin's announced the city's going to do an end run around the injunction against bicycle projects. Coming sometime this year, a pilot bike-sharing program modeled after Paris' popular Velib will start off with five rental stations in the FiDi, Mission Bay, the Presidio, Civic Center, and CCSF (downtown, perhaps?), all located on non-city property (well played, Mr. Mayor). Startup costs will be between $400k and $500k. Note to bike haters: on a recent jaunt to Paris, about half the bikes on the streets were Velibs, so... you know. Brace for the end times.
