Add Bueno Aires as a “Bike Sharing” City

Bike Sharing is picking up steam. The model is similar to the familiar “car-sharing” programs that have sprouted up in almost every large metropolitan city.

Soon Bueno Aires will be added to the growing list of “bike sharing” cities. Barcelona, Paris, Washington D.C., Montreal, and Mexico City have already implemented their programs and they are meeting with positive results.

“We are promoting a massive use of bikes, but we want it to be safe. So we need to adapt our infrastructure. Plus, these lanes will be public, both for those who are using the bike sharing program and for those who are riding their own bicycles,” said Eduardo Moreno, Buenos Aires Transportation sub-secretary.

For more on bike sharing you know the drill.
