Bike Share Program For Baltimore City

From Baltimore Brew (short excerpt):

It won’t be anything like those squeaky two-wheelers you rent for a Sunday spin around the park.

Baltimore’s Department of Transportation is in the process of selecting a vendor to operate a network of high-tech bikes and computerized kiosks to entice city dwellers and visitors to use bicycles to get around downtown and nearby neighborhoods.

Known as “bike sharing” or “smart biking,” the program has taken root in Denver, Minneapolis, Boston, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere after proving enormously popular in Europe.

The concept is simple – you pick up a bike at the nearest “B-station” and then drop it off when you’re done at any station in the network. The bikes can be accessed through a yearly membership or day pass. The individual is responsible for any damage or loss until the bike is returned to another hub and checked in.
