The Year of the Bike Share rides a blue wave into New York City

Earlier this spring, I wrote that 2013 is the Year of the Bike-Share, and on Monday, New York City proved it. That morning, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and NYC DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan launched Citi Bike, the nation’s largest bike share system.
With 6,000 bright blue bikes available to more than 16,000 members at more than 300 stations –including the solar-powered City Hall station where the launch ceremony took place– this is a terrific next step for a city that has already embraced bicycling as a mode of transportation that residents want.
