What is "Bike Sharing?"

Liberty Bike Share is aiming for Philadelphia

It's a simple concept, and works the same way Philly Car Share does.

You pick up a bike, ride it to your destination, and either bring it back to the original spot or leave it at another spot; simple, right? Just like PCS allows people to use a car when they want to for a reasonable rate, Philly Bike Share would accomplish the same thing ... but with bikes.

Check out this article from Flying Kite to learn more about why Philly needs something like this.

Sorry about that, David.

I was having trouble finding your logo, so I just uploaded the old BSP one. The changes have been made, and I look forward to hearing more about your group.
