One way to kill a fledgling bike share

24Oct12

I spent the day in Boston riding the Hubway all over town. It was fantastic. More shortly.

In the meantime: I will never understand the helmet vending machine. If you want a bike share to be successful, you have to build the streets to make it so. I love that Bixi has exploded so quickly but it does leave users—especially inexperienced city cyclists—in a bit of a cart before the horse situation. After a day on Boston’s passable to horrible roads it’s clear the only ones who are making excuses are the city officials who aren’t funding separated cycling infrastructure.
