Re: Re: The Velibs are coming?
I think it’s fair to say that the concept of the Velibs has been a good success, and there were plenty of commentators who took the attitude that this scheme could not work in Ireland, the bikes would be destroyed in the first week, etc. (same sort of stuff that was said about smoking ban).
But Hutton is right, we shouldn’t forget that relative to Paris we got a bad deal. We gave away too much for too little.
Who negotiated the deal? Was it Dublin City Manager John Tierney?
