New York Considering Huge Bike Sharing Program

New York City has done a good job in recent years to encourage cycling instead of driving in the city.  Bike lanes and tramadol 100 mg fed ex delivery paths have been created and new policies have been instituted to protect cyclists and pedestrians, but the city may be planning the biggest encouragement yet:  a huge bike-sharing program.

The proposed program, created by Mayor Bloomberg and Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, would start with 10,500 bikes availabe for rent and then quickly spread to 49,000 bikes, similar in scale to the successful Paris Vélib’ program.

Other details like station locations, timing, etc. aren't available yet, but we'll be excitedly awaiting more news.

I think the bikes should all come with powder-blue bike helmets ...

My city used to have borrow-bikes.
They sat around the city and you could use them whenever, if you saw one. However, that doesn't generate revenue for the city like this does. Ecological, and economical smilies/smiley.gif

I love that this "new" trend has come to the USA! From experiences form Gothenburg, Sweden, I can say that this has the potential to ease up the online pharmacy cost levitra traffic situation. And hopefully make an impact on health as well.
The cyclists must pay road user tax

In this day and age we are used to the user pays concept. I have objection to this kind of development IF the cyclists are compelled to pay registration, insurance and road taxes like all other wheeled road users are.

Careful what you wish for. Once cyclists start paying road taxes, you can expect (legitimate) calls for bike lanes on EVERY SINGLE STREET - they're paying for them, aren't they?

Gas tax only pays for a small percentage of the roads. Roads in NYC are public property and are maintained with state, city and federal funds. I have been paying taxes for roads for quite some time, but I am not destroying them with a chevy suburban!

and I am all for tolls on any street of importance including bridges, as long as bikes are charged proportional to their contribution toward pollution, negative impact on public health, and resources needed to create and destroy them. Should be about 1 tenth of one percent I bet.
