New wave of US cities look at bike-sharing plans
from The Associated Press
The new message to commuters in Minneapolis: Hit a bicycle pedal instead of a gas pedal. Minneapolis is joining Denver in a new wave of cities in car-crazy America trying to cut down on obesity, traffic jams and air pollution with bike-sharing programs. The city debuted Nice Ride Minnesota with 700 bicycles and 65 kiosks where riders can swipe a keycard, pick up a bike and go — making it one of the largest urban bike-sharing programs in the U.S.
