Minneapolis Minnesota’s new Bike Sharing system is up and running this month.
Utne Readers’s associate editor Julie Hanus’s column ‘The Sweet Pursuit’ grabbed hold of Minnesota’s new BikeShare program, “NiceRide” that’s rolling out this month and gave it a good look. Entitled The Future of Biking, and oh, David Byrne!, thr article gives a nice overview of the program celebrated at a “Pint and Policy” public meeting last week in Minneapolis.
The Bike Share program foreshadows Toronto’s own Bixi Bike Share that City council passed last month (see Biking Toronto article, Toronto City Council passes Bixi Toronto Public Bike Program).
Below is the interactive map at Nice Ride Minneapolis. Notice it’s set up to keep riders informed going forward. I’ve opened a bubble that shows how many bikes are at each Bike Station. Stations that are “Out of Service” are marked in red.
