Bike-Share Test Launched in Big Apple
JOHN YDSTIE, host:
Good morning. I'm John Ydstie.
Don't call the cops! It's not stealing; it's sharing. In New York, a bike-share project is getting rolling outside a gallery in SoHo. It's modeled after programs in a number of European cities. Twenty bikes will be available to whoever wants to use them, but users must provide credit card information in case they don't share nicely. If the test works, organizers say they'll launch a year-round bike-sharing system for the city.
It's MORNING EDITION.
