What are some challenges of a public bike sharing program?



  1. 0 Votes

    In the 1990s a bike-sharing program in Portland, Oregon failed, largely due to vandalism and theft of bikes. More recently in Paris, France a privately self-supported bike-sharing program turned out to be a money hole as thousands of stolen and destroyed bicycles have to be replaced. The expense of initiating this sort of program is an issue as well, especially in a recession. One estimate puts the figure at around $3,500 per bike to get started. Safer and more plentiful bike paths may be a better investment to get city residents to choose bikes for their commuting.
