    We’ll soon have overseas competition: http://citibikenyc.com/

    Just from the look of the bikes and docks, it’s surely the same system as ours.

    The London system is the same as Montreal’s Bixi – which has exported to many cities around the world, NYC included.

    Have a look here:

    Great to see! I spend a fair amount of time in NYC and I’ll be sure to give it a whirl. Traffic might be a little scary tho.

    It’s interesting to see that it claims to be 100% privately funded. Also that annual members get a better deal: 45 minute free journeys and reduced rates if you go over. Bring that to London please Boris!!

    But it’s $9.95 for 24 hour membership compared with our charge of £1. Interesting to see the charges for over 30 mins hire are reduced for annual members so it looks like they’re really trying to encourage annual membership.
