Bike Sharing redux

Nice article in the ProJo about the bike sharing projects at RISD and Brown. How much success will these projects have? How many of these bikes will end up in the Providence River? Regardless, it will be interesting to see where this goes.

    I stopped by the Bikes @ Brown group this past Friday. They have a small fleet at this point, only five bikes I believe, but a LOT of energy. The Brown model requires people to stop by during office hours to check-in/out a bike, so I think there is less chance that they will walk. I also suspect it means they will be used less as well.

    I'm trying to encourage the Brown group to get in touch with RISD, we will see.
