    NYC Bike-Sharing Program to Start with 10,000 Bikes!

    I have written about New York City’s planned bike-sharing program a couple times here on EcoLocalizer, and have written about bike-sharing programs in Paris, China, Barcelona, London (a couple times), Chicago, D.C.

Now, it’s being reported that Boston’s new bike-sharing program is a great success, even much more successful than originally anticipated. More

    Bike-Sharing Program in Wrocław, Poland — 1st Ride

    I wrote a pretty extensive introduction to Wrocław’s new bike-sharing program about a month and a half ago, with 18 photos and 2 videos included. Now, I said that I would write an update once I tried it out and I finally have. Marika (my partner) and I were walking to the store today and decided on the way to try it out if there were any bikes available (every other time we went to try it out there weren’t bikes available or, once, the system was down). It was quite simple to use, the process being… More
