I just read this interesting article on The Atlantic showing a diagram comparing the geographic footprints of different bikeshares around the world. Here's the article: http://www.theatlanticcities.com/commute/2013/05/geographic-footprints-worlds-biggest-bike-share-networks/5745/

Even though they do not factor in the capacity of the individual stations (it'd be cool to see a map showing that, too), it's interesting that CaBi looks a lot more spread out compared to the rest of the world.

But the Wall Street journal lady said that Paris and London are the only cities with bikeshare and that nobody in America (especially New York!) wants such an inconvenient, environmentally safe, "blazing blue" means of transport!

No, we prefer the godless communist red color. Either that or it matches my school colors. ;)

Do you think she is really just objecting to the color?
