New York is due to have a huge infusion of bikes, soon. A bike share program is in the works and is due to be out this summer. Holy smokes!
Bikes will be located en masse in locations around the city. All you do is pick one up, ride to another station, and drop it off. The monthly rental fees will cost less than a monthly Metrocard, which is $104 right now.
My only question is...where are all the cyclists going to be? The sidewalks are not an option. The streets are already crowded and dangerous. I hope this works for the betterment of the city but like any self-respecting cynical New Yorker, I have my doubts!
