StreetsBlog noted the contrast between differing media views on the debut of the bike share. I prefer the point of view of the New Yorker!
StreetsBlog also reported on interesting research showing that public support is lowest (opposite: NIMBYism is highest) at the implementation of a new project. This suggests that public support for New York City’s bike share should make a steady climb as people realize how much better it is than driving.
Meanwhile back in Salt Lake City, where bike share was inaugurated six weeks ago, I continue to use GreenBike almost daily. Since the start of the program, I have made 88 trips for a total of 127 miles and am currently number 3 on the leaderboard for both trips and mileage!
