Bike sharing

WNYC reports that New York is looking to get a bike share program started by 2012.  These seem to work well in places like Barcelona and Minneapolis, so it may be a surprise that it is taking this long for NY to sign on.  Until you read about the opposition to bike lanes in the City.  Then again, maybe NYC got interested only when Boston announced they were doing it too.

You can see from the map below that Minneapolis has lots of stations. That's part of what makes it work.
