Bike sharing

Grist: The city of Denver has launched the US’s largest bike-sharing program, setting up 500 bicycles at 50 locations around the city for its citizens to use for transport instead of cars. The program is simple: you can sign up online for 24-hour, seven-day, 30-day or annual membership which entitles you to access any of the bikes for that period of time. If you only need it for 30 minutes or less, it’s free.┬áThe network also includes a GPS tracking system so bikers can see how far they have travelled, and allows them to locate nearby bikes.

The B-cycle program mirrors similar programs running in Montreal and Paris, and other cities including Mexico City and Boston are set to launch their own bike-sharing networks. Read more here.
