"A society built on green design, sustainable energy and closed loop systems, a civilization afloat on a cloud of efficient, non-toxic, recyclable technology." ~~Alex Nikolai Steffan


A friend of mine told me about these bike rentals in NYC. They operate on the same idea as Zip cars, only for bikes.

You are charged
$5 for 24 hours of use. (Or you can subscribe to a monthly or yearly plan, which includes a BIXI key.) After swiping, the machine spits out a ticket with your code to release a bike. You enter that number at any dock with an available bike, and it releases.

They have lots of these in Paris and Montreal and northwestern states are trying them out. They have space for a small pack of books or groceries.

Given the fact that Tallahassee weather permits almost year-round cycling, wouldn't this be a logical extension to the revised Star Metro system?
