Bike Share Programs In The Works For Boston
Paris, Minneapolis, Denver, Washington, Miami, New York, Hangzhou, China, and now Boston -- these are just some of the many cities across the world that have established or are currently planning bike share programs.
It is not uncommon to see myriad bikes and bike stations scattered across European metropolitan areas, and the trend is quickly catching on in the United States. The systems are, for the most part, simple and uniform: For small fees or deposits, bikes can be rented at any station and returned to any other station. Bike sharing has, in some locations, even been integrated into local public transportation systems.
