Throwback Thursday – Bike share

Shared bikes on 7th street downtown -June 2012

Just like cities in more than 50 countries across five continents St. Paul had a bike-sharing program.  There are more than 1,000 public bicycle schemes of varying sizes and specifications around the world and apparently, none of those schemes work in St. Paul.

We do have shared electric scooters and a lot of them. That indicates to me that we do know how to share.

Will we ever have a shared bike program again? Probably not under the current administration. We do have more bike trails and bike lanes than ever before which indicates there is an interest in biking.

Using a bike for errands is a great way to reduce carbon emissions and a great way to get some exercise.
