I am interviewed by Roxanne Palmer in the International Business Times: Citi Bike Launches In NYC, But Will It Reach New Yorkers Who Aren’t Rich And White?. My words of wisdom:
“‘I would say you have to walk before you can run,’ University of Minnesota civil engineer David Levinson says. ‘You have to get something operational before you can expand.’ “
The system is also quite flexible. As data pours in on usage patterns and as interest grows, the city can respond accordingly.
“You can pick up a bike-share station and move it somewhere else,” Levinson says. “It’s much easier to do that than to build a subway system.”
Also quoted are Kevin Krizek and David King, so you know it’s a good article.
