Meanwhile in London, the Barclays Cycle Hire

Well, with all that talk about Citi Bikes coming here soon, probably ... here's a dispatch from EVG London Correspondent Dave on 7th from a few weeks ago...

"A well-worn program here in London. Must say they are everywhere, and fairly innocuous. It's been quite cold, so I don't think many people have been riding much. I've been told they are quite popular for commuters to the point that there are sometimes arguments over trying to grab the last spot in a corral. But, there always seems to be another corral nearby."

The Barclays Cycle Hire launched in July 2010.

This bike share program has been in Montreal for a few years now, and it is extremely popular with the residents. The bikes here are also branded with corporate names, but I guess that's how they keep the cost of rental down.
