San Francisco and Bay cities now have bikeshare

29 08 2013

Of interest is that the Bay Area Bike Share scheme has started up this month in San Francisco plus some surrounding cities like Palo Alto and San Jose. They’re using Bixi bikes. Bixi is now known as the Public Bike System Company.

The PBSC’s motto is “Changing the World One City as a Time” and bike share is happening in some of the most important and hippest cities. Why isn’t Wellington similarly important and hip?
