New-York Bike-Share Project Starts

In a previous post on CD about communal bike-sharing, I documented the problems of the "yellow bike" program in Lexington, KY.

Now NYC is launching The New York Bike-Share Project, see this Washington Post story.

One reason this program might actually succeed? "It's free for the first week, but cyclists must provide credit card information to ensure they bring the bike back." After that, it appears that a credit card will still be required, and there will be a charge for each use.
