The Beverly Hills, CA Bike Share Program is a reality now... I have written  a post in 2014 about this very subject. Beverly Hills and Santa Monica were spending hundreds of thousands of dollars: The purpose was to do feasibility studies. To make sure this could work. I wrote a post and was scratching my head why they needed to do a feasibility study. All they had to do was look at Boston, MA. (see link below)

Needless to say with a lot of Pomp & Ceremony the bike share system is now in effect. There are 50 smart bikes with on-board technology connecting 100 bike docking stations throughout the City.

check out http://www.BeverlyHillsBike-Share.com and download the App to your smart phone and you are in business. Sign in and take a bike from one of the seven lcoations throughout the City. The good news is the the smart bikes are compatible with the bike share systemin Santa Monica as well.

Endre it would have been to easy to look at the look at Boston, MA.  Politicians need to make it look hard so they can look like heroes :)

We just recently got a program like this through a Federal grant. I think it is a smart idea and will get lots of use.

Hi Endre - Those are great programs. Do you think the residents of Beverly Hills will be limiting their limo usage in favor of bikes?

Endre, The bike share concept is an excellent idea but with the always present heavy traffic throughout the LA area I am not sure I would want to ride a bike on the streets.. ::)))

Hi Endre, thanks for the update on this Bike Sharing program.  Neighboring Portland OR implemented a very similar program, and the shape of the bikes look to be the same, although here they are Orange in color.  Also, being Portland (a bit weird & anti-car) they have the bike parking taking up two spots where cars would have parked - keeping the sidewalk clear of these.  John and Kat
