Not only have London done the bike sharing situation extremely well, now New York is follow our example and doing their own. Barclays here in London have created bikes that can be paid for by the hour to rent, there are plenty of drop off and pick up zones throughout the city for the user to use and drop the bikes to.
With 6000 bicycles it makes it not only the biggest in the USA but it bigger than the London one. This is not only helping the person riding exercise, but ins helping to reduce carbon footprint. Helping the environment is key, especially in such big cities such as London and New York where there are lots of cars and pollution.
