Hangzhou's Bike-Share Shows How It's Done (Video) #architecture

2,000+ Stations, 50,000+ Bicycles Now, 175,000+ Expected by 2020 File this one in the category: "Learning from China". Hangzhou's bike-sharing system is an inspiration for the rest of the world. The fundamentals aren't so different from what is being done elsewhere (like Vélib in Paris ), but the ambition is on another scale. The Hangzhou Public Bicycles are well integrated into the other mass transit modes, the number of bikes and stations is growing very rapidly, and the bikes are essentially free on most trips. Check out the video above to see just how great the system is and how satisfied local residents are. Via Streetfilms .
