New York City Bike Share


New York City authorities have given the Big Apple’s first bike-share scheme the green light. Operated by the NYC Department of Transport (DOT), the initiative is set to put the city on a par with the likes of Paris and Amsterdam. 

The scheme will boast 10,000 bikes, available 24 hours a day for commuters and tourists. More than 600 self-service solar-powered docking stations will be installed over the next few months for the bikes. NYC DOT has invited members of the public to recommend locations. Bikes will be free of charge for rentals of 30-45 minutes, with fees for longer usage.
