San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom announced during his visit to Paris that the City will pilot a bike share program this year.
“Bike sharing will help connect thousands of residents and commuters to their workplaces and shopping destinations by providing bikes that they can easily borrow,” said Mayor Newsom.
To get around the court injunction that prevents San Francisco from implementing any bike facility changes, this pilot of 50 bicycles will be funded by Clear Channel Communications with five stations installed on non-city property.
