New Relay Bike Share System Latest Step Toward Atlanta's Multi-Modalism
Cassandra Maddox writes: "Last week, phase one of the city’s Relay Bike Share program rolled out with 100 bikes at 10 stations downtown, just in time for the third annual Atlanta Cycling Festival, which in previous years drew crowds of up to 3,000 cyclists." The program plans to operate 500 bikes by the end of the year.
Maddox places the new bikeshare system in the context of Atlanta's traditional car-friendly ways, and details some of the challenges facing the city as it works to become a more bike-friendly city.
