"As we have seen with CicLAvia and 'Carmaheaven,' Angelenos are aching for a day without a car, but in tough economic times like these, we knew it wasn't feasible to start a public bike share program. But we do know it's what LA needs."
"We're building the infrastructure, we're making it safe, and we're making it practical for Angelenos to get from point A to point B on two wheels," Villaraigosa said.
So basically the city can't afford it but they see the upside! So get ready to find 4,000 bicycles all over Los Angeles!
Wonder if WeHo will follow suit. Amsterdam & Paris have been renting biciycles from automated stations for almost a decade now.
