Calgary city council is in the process of deliberations on whether or not to approve the city's first public bike share. There is alot discussion among the citizens and in the press.

Many people feel it's premature because our cycling infrastructure isn't extensive/good enough.

**However the good thing is that ALOT of people are now admitting and agreeing, yes, we need to improve cycling infrastructure and approve of the near future plans and money for implementation from this year until 2013 at least.

This alone is a major huge step to get bring a bunch of former fence-sitters.

***I was visiting my family for a wk. in Toronto last fall, where I did see their public bike share system stations all over the downtown area. No, I was on my bike. I didn't try it but...then I've already tried the same model as a demo model in Vancouver about 3 yrs. ago.
