After some delays, Atlanta’s Bike Share program launched on Thursday, June 23. Atlanta joins cities like Boston, New York and Philadelphia in this effort to extend the reach of public transportation for residents, workers and tourists in the downtown area. 100 bikes are currently available at 10 downtown Atlanta stations. By the end of 2016, 500 bikes will be available to borrow. The City of Atlanta hopes that this program will help provide residents with access to more jobs in a way that promotes health and nutrition as well as civic pride for what Atlanta has to offer.
