Bikeshare about to start in NYC

Check out this new slideshow?by our former trustee, Silvia Ascarelli. It talks about some things you may not know about bike sharing programs in cities in the US and around the world. I learned about bike share in smaller communities, which I’d not known about before. If we had some bikes available for bike share in West Windsor or Princeton or Plainsboro, where would YOU put the docking stations? Where would you want to borrow a bike to go to or from?

  3. Great question. Obviously, you’d want as many stations as possible because the more stations, the better, but it also does somewhat depend on what you want to achieve with the scheme. At the Princeton side, the obvious places are: Palmer Square, Dinky station, Whole Earth Center, Princeton Shopping Center, Township hall, Butler apartments and the Grad college. If it was just three, I’d say Shopping Center, Palmer Square and Dinky.
