Throwback Thursday – bikes

St. Paul used to have a shared bike program. I have photographic evidence.

Bike share systems remain popular throughout the U.S. and around the world. According to a report just released by the National Association of City Transportation Officials, residents and tourists in US cities took 35 million bike-share trips in 2017, up a whopping 25 percent from 2016.  The number of trips that are taken each day on shared bikes continues to rise.

The lack of a share bike program in St. Paul makes the city unique. Who knows maybe one day St. Paul will be the only city without a bike-share program.
