Biking has had decent growth in certain cities around the world in recent years, and one of the biggest innovations stimulating that growth has been bikesharing. I recently ran across (i.e., searched out) recent bikesharing news that has slipped through our editorial fingers

Helsinki Bikeshare Program Triples After Successful Launch

June 9th, 2017 | by Andrea Bertoli

Bikeshare programs are a great solution to urban density. Bikeshare programs, which are increasing in both number of locations and expansion of individual programs, allow commuters to get around dense urban areas by renting a bike from one station and returning at another. These innovative programs are great for drivers, who see less traffic on city streets, and great for workers, who can take a quick bike ride to the post office, to lunch, or to a meeting without having to take a cab or their own car. They are affordable and safe alternative to downtown commuting

Baltimore Bike Share Arrives With 40% Electric Fleet

January 7th, 2017 | by James Ayre

Baltimore, Maryland, finally got its first bikeshare program about a month ago — Baltimore Bike Share. Ridership levels are already pretty good (~6,000 rides). That perhaps has something to do with the fact that around 40% of the bikeshare fleet is made up of electric bikes, rather than the whole fleet being "simply" pedal-powered bikes


10 Cleantech Solutions Your City Should Implement

December 8th, 2016 | by Zachary Shahan

Cities are where most of the world's people live, and they can make the move toward cleantech and away from burning up the planet go much, much — much — faster.
