Philly's Bike-sharing Demonstration
Hundreds of Philadelphians braved the extreme cold to experience 3rd generation bike sharing. Bike Share Philadelphia demonstrated Public Bike System's bike-sharing station to the public with bikes from both BIXI and NiceRide, Montreal's and Minneapolis' future bike-sharing programs. This is part of a two day celebration of the first anniversary of Bike Share Philadelphia’s quest for bike-sharing. The event also included the screening of videos about bike-sharing and livable streets from Streefilms.org. More information about today's events is at BikeSharePhilly.
