Hoboken Bike Share Going Strong One Month In
HOBOKEN, N.J. (CBSNewYork) - One month in, officials say Hoboken’s new bike sharing program is going strong.
“We’re doing over 25 rides a day, which means every bike is getting used at least once,” Wogas said. “We’re finding significant traffic from residential areas to commuting areas and then back.”
In Hoboken, the bikes use what’s called a Smart Lock instead of the docks used across the river.
“The bikes can essentially be locked anywhere. They’re easier to move. They’re easier to maintain and to fix,” he said.
He said they’re even getting e-mails from folks in Jersey City wanting a bike share.
In November, the city of Hoboken plans to evaluate the trial and could expand the program up to 500 bikes.
