Bike Sharing in DC

NYT: Bicycle-Sharing Program to Be First of Kind in U.S.
"WASHINGTON — Starting next month, people here will be able to rent a bicycle day and night with the swipe of a membership card...."
One my favorite things I heard said about the Vélib program in Paris (in a documentary on the subject) was that it also fosters more Pariens having "beautiful bottoms".

i used to use the Deutsche Bahn's city bike program in Berlin: you dial the unique phone number on the side of the bike and it unlocks, charged your phone carrier 4 cents per minute until you redial after manually locking it. problem: sometimes you saw badly vandalized bikes on random corners.
