Re: Re: The Velibs are coming?
Another fine piece of journalism from the herald. All nonsense… you don’t get charged 150 euro. There is alot of banter about not being able to find a space to park it… I’ve used the system in 3 different cities on busy weekends and never had a problem. there’s nearly double the parking space for them as bikes, and they get re-distributed.
There is also simply no point in comparing city with city and what’s going to happen to them. The only way to know is to introduce it. Dublin is a flat city, and despite what people think, its not that dangerous to cycle around. Cars and buses generally take alot of care when they see a cyclist, if your breaking lights, cycling down one way streets as some cyclists do [im guilty of the former!], then the risk increases. There will be accidents but that’s life. looking forward to it all i must say.
