B-cycle, San Antonio’s bike share program, now boasts 20 docking stations and 200 bikes.
Yearly memberships for $30 are still available by visiting sanantonio.bcycle.com and using the promo code “current.” The deal is good until March.
You can see a map of their kiosks at the link. They originally had 14 kiosks and 140 bikes, and the deal for yearly membership is half off the original price.
I’m pleased to say that I have a status update on Houston’s bike sharing program, which was supposed to have had a pilot rollout by the fall. According to Laura Spanjian, the schedule has slipped a little, but they are on track for a late 2011/early 2012 launch. Bike Houston is setting up a non-profit to run the pilot program, with support from the city, and B-Cycle won the bid to provide the bikes. So, progress is indeed being made. I will report back when I hear more.
