Everyone knows that driving a couple blocks is never the best thing to do. Getting out and walking or biking is not only good for you but for the environment as well. Walking and Biking also saves you lots of money because it’s free!
Santa Monica recently paired with Global Green and tried out a system for bike sharing. This system has locations spread out through the city that you can either pick up or drop off bikes at. This a huge leap forward because it makes using a bike readily available to anyone.
The city of Santa Monica seems interested and companies are already making these systems, I know the Metro would be involved in the whole process as well, which would help out a lot. The whole idea seems to be very supported and hopefully this will be the alternative to zip cars. If put into play this will bring down emissions and meet new goals that Santa Monica has set for themselves.
