Bike-Sharing Goes North-To Montreal

This summer saw the launch of Montreal's bike-sharing program. Known as the public bike sharing system, or "PBS", the program makes use of innovative bike design, solar powered stations, wireless management and software to create a unique, technologically advanced program for the city of Montreal. More info on the system can be found on their website here.

Perhaps most interestingly, riders can find available bicycles via web browsers on their cell phones.

Read about bike sharing programs in Paris, Barcelona, Mexico City and Washington, DC here.

C'mon New York, step up your game!
