Bicycle Sharing System of Milan
Milan has a fantastic bike rental system called BikeMi. There are three types of subscriptions (as they call them):
ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION: 36 € ($49.53)
WEEKLY SUBSCRIPTION: 6 € ($ 8.25)
DAILY SUBSCRIPTION: 2,50 € ($ 3.44)
There are 105 locations throughout the city where one can drop off, pick up, or leave the bike temporarily–just pick a spot on the map closest to your destination.
I took this photo with my point-and-shoot a few years back. We didn’t know about the bike sharing at the time. It’s a terrific, green idea and great for tourists and cities alike. I would like to see this implemented in some of our largest cities here in the U.S. Possible? Oui o Non?
