    NPR radio interview with Chicago DOT Gabe Klein on Bike Share programming

    An excellent radio interview at NPR with Gabe Klein, commissioner of the Chicago Department of Transportation, previously of the DC DOT, on Chicago Bike Share, and promotion of bike shares generally around the country.

    He discusses the goals of Bike Share programs, their aim at normalizing bike transportation in urban areas, and touches on some of the astounding successes of the new bike share programs coming on line in America.

    listen to the interview at http://www.npr.org/2013/06/01/187862903/bike sharing programs roll into cities across the US
    "Evidence, anecdote and methodology all support planning for roadway bike traffic."

    Thanks for the link. Nice to hear a common sense, realistic assessment of the bike share program without a ton of biases, assumptions and "the sky is falling pronouncements".
