Two Wheel Transit: NYC Bike Share
Starting in summer 2012, New York City will have a two wheel transit system! You will be able to pick up a public bike at any of hundreds of conveniently located self-service sharing stations, and drop it off at any dock when you're done. The bike share program provides an easy way of making short, one-way trips; from your apartment to the subway, from your office to lunch, from dinner to a movie. Similar systems are thriving in London, Mexico City, Paris, Washington, DC, Montreal, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Taipei and dozens of other cities worldwide. For many people, cycling has become a logical extension of transit, connecting hard-to-get-to neighborhoods with existing services and changing how people move about the city.
This exhibition is designed to explain the bike share system, how it will work in New York City and how you can help shape the program by suggesting bike share locations. www.nyc.gov/bikeshare
