    Bike share program coming to San Diego

    http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/...diego-council/

    It will be interesting to see where they put the bike stations. I'm assuming they will mostly be downtown.

    I'd love to see it work, but I'm skeptical. (Not in the goodness of such programs, but in the response of the typical auto-addicted Southern Californian.)
    From what I've seen, we're still too fearful, selfish, and lazy for it to work. I'd love to be proved wrong and pleasantly surprised though; it happens every once in a while.

    I tend to agree with Chris but it would be great if people took to it.

    From the article:

    "One potential downside for the city is that some of the stations may have to be placed where metered parking currently exists. The city estimated that the removal of 10 parking meters would reduce revenue by $21,000 per month. Itís not clear how many parking meters would need to be eliminated at this point."

    WOW - 10 parking meters = $21,000/month?!

    I advocate more people on bikes. I also advocate people on bikes being knowledgeable and skilled. Grabbing a potentially clunky bike with an unknown history does not appeal to me, and I loathe the possibility of sharing the road with those, probably low skilled masses, that it does appeal to.

    If you want to bike, good. Get one. You'll be more prone to maintain it, and actually learn to ride it properly.
    Freedom is free. It's included in democracy. Democracy is hard. It involves dealing rationally with people you disagree with.

    Maybe the Ocean/Mission/Pacific Beach locations will appeal to tourists. I'm assuming they will be located near existing public transit stations.
