Video: StreetFilms on Smartbike DC Bike-Sharing Program

Bike-Sharing in D.C.
A week and a half ago we wrote about the launch of Smartbike DC, a new VĂ©lib-style bike sharing in D.C. with 120 bikes and 10 stations.

StreetFilms went to have a closer look (you can click the image above, it's a video - for some reason the interface disappeared). One interesting piece of info from Alice Kelly from the District Department of Transportation: They didn't know how popular it would be, and they started planning it before the price of gas rose, so that's why it is that small right now. But they want to add more bikes and stations. Good news! Via D.C. Launches Bike-Sharing Program
