Citibike Success Over the World

The Citibike bike sharing program is up and running in NYC despite some predicting nothing short of the apocalypse, yet just 10 days in and the bikes have been taken for a ride over 100,000 times, and to my knowledge without a single death! Yeah, Yeah, we all knew once the ribbons were cut and the wheels got rolling that everyone would fall in line, but just in case fears still needed to be quelled a bit, Animal NYC conducted an interview with a bike sharing rep in London to get a feel of how everything has gone since they launched their own program under similar NIMBY-like frustrations and controversy. As is to be expected, everything is rolling smoothly. Good thing for other cities around the country who are looking to implement their own programs who now have another successful example to silence the naysayers.
