1 Million Miles
By: David H. Kim
The NY Daily News says the Citibike program will soon top one million miles. You’ve probably seen one of those unmistakable blue bikes around the city if you live or work in midtown or below. Whether you think this is a great or horrible idea, Citi Bikes seem to be logging a lot of miles. As a personal user, this has made the idea of biking much more feasible in the city. Granted, the touring bike is the last thing you would want to be seen on, it has made travel quite efficient. No lugging of a bike up and down stairs. The bikes conveniently lock up in a few seconds and are ready to go just as quickly. In a city where transportation is so critical to the infrastructure of all that happens, I for one am glad for another option.
