New York City is one of the greatest city’s to live in because you do not have to drive to get around. There are those times though, when having a car is convenient for running errands, trips to Ikea or loading up on bulk groceries. The options of car sharing has increased and we now have a couple more options other than the pioneer of car sharing Zipcar. Hertz Connect and Mint are out on the road and are waiting to be shared.
New York City is going to join other big cities across the world like Montreal, London, Frankfurt and Stockholm by expanding transportation and creating a bike share program.
The program will consist of 600 stations with 10,000 bikes located in Manhattan, Brooklyn and potentially Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx. Users of the service will be able to sign up for a membership or sign out a bike using their credit card. When you are finished riding the bike, you simply return it to a bike share station.
