Good Ideas: Bicycle Sharing Deemed Viable in Philadelphia

The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia recently released a report on the viability of bike sharing in Philadelphia. The result of a year of research, the "Philadelphia Bike Share Concept Study" found that a market exists in Philadelphia and recommended a system of 2,500 to 4,500 bicycles.

I recently spent some time in Paris and, despite some issues, people seem to love the Velib system—its used by both visitors and residents.
