Bike-sharing

Today on Your Call: How could bike-sharing improve your city and your life?

  On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about bike-sharing.  This August, commuters in San Francisco, San Jose, and other cities along the CalTrain line will be able to borrow and return bicycles at kiosks in different locations to improve their commute.  The Bay Area Air Quality Management District will implement this &7 million dollar pilot program starting with 700 bikes at 70 stations.  Bike-sharing is a popular program in other cities across the country and globe.  How would it work in your area?  Join us at 10am Pacific Time or post a comment here.  Would bike-sharing help you get around? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and You.

Guests:

Kit Hodge, deputy director of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition 

Heath Maddox, senior planner for Livable Streets with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency 

Chris Holben, Bikesharing project manager (Capital Bikeshare) with Department of Transportation in Washington DC
