A few months ago I saw a crew setting up what looked like a bike rental stall/station near the Performing Arts Centre in Fort Laudeerdale. Some time later I found out that Broward’ County has embraced a bike-sharing program that has been in place in many cities across America.
On Wednesday December 2011 Broward County and the cities of Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Pompano Beach, Dania Beach, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and Hallandale launched a bike sharing program A company called B-cycle supplied 200 bikes initially.
Here are some interesting facts about Broward.Bcycle.com
“In our first year of operation, B-cycle helped you burn 3.4 MILLION calories and kept 87,804 lbs of carbon dioxide from entering our atmosphere.”
- “Our B-team is working 7 days a week to make sure you always have a tuned & ready B-cycle. We service 275 bicycles at 27 stations in 6 cities in Broward County, FL – and growing. More than 26,000 people have explored these cities by B-cycle!”
