on streetsblog from nyc there is talk about the potential for a bike share program
ny bike share dot org

this nyc bike share thing is very exciting

I wonder what sort of impact it will have

my fear...
the bikes will be stripped by thieves

borrowed with stolen credit cards

abused by the parties that rent them

all while bicycles will not be properly maintained by the program
providing a quick source of cash to the junkie with stickey fingers and a set of tools
left to clutter the sidewalks in a short amount of time

because I am an optimist
