As Pittsburgh discusses Bike Share, and potential “market,” I found this article from Transportation Nation to be interesting. I thought some of you might as well.

Is that the NYC population is that much larger, development is denser, the demographic is different, or maybe that Bike Share as a concept has come a long way in the few years since Capital Bike Share opened?

Here’s the start of the article….

Registration for New York’s bike share system officially opened at 11 am Monday, and by 3 pm, some 2500 people had signed up.

(For information on how to sign up and where to find maps, click on our related post here.)

By comparison, about 2,000 people signed up in the entire month before Washington DC’s bike share launched in August 2010 according to Chris Holben, who runs the bike share program for the District DOT. Washington currently has the largest bike share system in the United States…..

You can find the entire article (just a few more paragraphs) at

Very cool.
All of the above.
Also DC has never had it’s entire transportation infrastructure paralyzed by blackouts/terror/weather/strikes.

We don’t care, we don’t share. Protests against bike share. #NIMBY
