Bike-sharing services roll into the US

City commuters weary of stuffy journeys aboard buses and subways now have a better way to get to work, buy groceries and meet for a Saturday matinee. The bike-sharing programs that have transformed Europeans into two-wheeled travelers are now en route to the U.S. Clear Channel Outdoor, an outdoor advertising company, will launch the country?s first bike-share service in Washington, D.C., in mid-May in partnership with the district?s Department of Transportation. SmartBike DC will initially offer annual subscribers access to 100 bikes at 10 stations in the city?s central business district.
