Casey Niestat takes a look at New York’s new bikeshare program, and compares it to New York’s other transportation options. It’s a pretty great vid, though I found myself wishing he was testing a commute with some real distance – say Brooklyn to Tribeca. A 1.3 mile walk would take about as long as his taxi ride, make all possible options of his tested commute about equal, time-wise, on the scale of NYC commutes, and the Brooklyn availability of bikes is a big issue.)
Wired reports that CitiBike users have started turning the seat backwards on bikes that require maintenance, as a signal to other users to move on to the next bike.
