A prime example of how a bike share program has transformed into an everyday element of city transportation, is this photo from the SDB flickr pool by Bart Omeu.
BICING or, "Bike share" in Barcelona is more like a "City share" program. It allows its citizens to experience an enhanced standard of city living that in previous years did not exist. It shouts," buy into Barcelona and you get all this..."
I've been admiring Barts' documentation of Barcelona street life, and through conversations and comparisons with Tursime Barcelona and theirBarcelona by bicycle guide I can imagine that the vibe in this photo will one day be pulsing through the heart of Toronto.
