The city chose a vendor today for a bicycle-sharing system. This is how it works: you borrow one of the 10,000 bikes from one of the 600 bike share stations, ride it to where you want to get to, and drop it off at any bike share station.
"Bike-share members will reportedly pay $100 annually for unlimited 30-minute trips between bike stations (longer trips will incur an additional charge). Visitors and those looking to try the system for shorter periods of time will also be able to buy daily and multi-day passes."
New York City Bike Share sums up the system this way: "Think Zipcar with bikes, and you don’t have to bring the bike back to where you started!"
