How Hoboken is Not Like the Rest of New Jersey

I saw this posted on FaceBook the other day and found it fascinating on many levels. Thought I’d share it with you all.  Think about what this means for schools, voting, property values, bar revenues.  The list goes on and on.  What do you think about this?

Bike Share coming to Hoboken – Vote Where you Want Bike Racks Placed!

HOBOKEN SEEKS PUBLIC INPUT FOR BIKE SHARE PROGRAM LOCATIONS

 

The City of Hoboken and Township of Weehawken are planning to launch the first phase of a bike share program with 300 bicycles by late fall of 2014. The program will include 230 bicycles in Hoboken and 70 bicycles in Weehawken. The manufacturer, NextBike, is providing the financing for the 300 bicycles.

“We are trying to make it easier for everyone to get around Hoboken, both with a car and without a car, and by offering bike sharing in every neighborhood, we are expanding transportation options for residents to get to the PATH, ferries, buses and travel throughout Hoboken more easily,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “This next-generation bike share technology costs a fraction of traditional systems, so it can support more bikes in more neighborhoods in a financially self-sufficient way without tax dollars.  We look forward to input from the community and the Council on our proposed locations so that our city-wide bike share system can be implemented this year.”
Members of the community are invited to view a map of preliminary proposed locations for the approximately 20 bike share stations in Hoboken and to provide their input by Wednesday, October 8, 2014on suggested locations by placing pins on an online map by visiting https://openplans.org/hoboken/bikeshare.Most bike share stations would be located in the 25 foot clear zone at corners where parking is prohibited, which would also improve visibility and pedestrian safety at intersections throughout the City.

 

The program will be operated by Bike and Roll, the largest bike tour and rental company in the United States, and will use bicycle technology manufactured by Nextbike, a leading operator and supplier of bike sharing systems with over 20,000 bicycles in 70 cities in 14 countries. The program will be financed through sponsorships, advertising, and membership fees.

 

The system will use smart bikes, the next generation of bike share technology. Traditional bike sharing systems rely on a “smart dock” approach for storing bicycles, which requires expensive infrastructure for docking stations. The “smart lock” approach relies on bicycles with built-in locks and communications equipment, providing increased flexibility at a fraction of the cost of traditional systems. This system will feature several “smart dock” stations along with a majority of “virtual dock” stations using traditional bicycle racks.
