New Parkwide Bike Share Program Launched

As New York City prepares for its citywide bike-share program, San Francisco is getting its own taste of bike-sharing. This week, the Recreation and Parks Department, in collaboration with three local bike rental companies, unveiled its newest project: Parkwide, a park to park rental service where you can rent a bike in one place and drop it off in another. 

Bike rental is nothing new in San Francisco. Places like Blazing Saddles, Bike and Roll, and Bay City Bike have been outfitting tourists with hybrids and tandems for years. But Parkwide’s flexible drop-off design sets it apart from the ordinary bike rental and puts it more in the realm of bikeshare.
