Paris Bike-share Program Vélib is Getting Even Bigger

with one comment


It was revolutionary. Bike blogs, sustainability gurus and national news outlets all gave ample to time to Paris when the city launched its commendable Vélib bike-sharing program. A year and a half later, the existing fleet of bicycles is expanding, ready to take over the suburbs.

The program is so popular with Parisians that “Velib” was the 2nd most popular Google search. So with an additional 300 stations and 3,300 not renting a bicycle while touring Paris just won’t be an option, and ça, c’est super!

  1. Je suis d’accord, c’est super! I try to bike whenever possible in my hometown, and hope that cities in the U.S. pick up on this trend as well.
