A new program that has started in Denver that I find absolutely amazing is the Denver Bike Sharing program.
These stations keep popping up all over Denver. You can rent one of these bike for an hour, day or week. Students get a discounted rate and you can return the bike to any station.
I think this is a great start to promote other forms of transportation besides a car. It is also great for someone that may not have a bike but would like to use one.
And it is great for the environment, what is not to like?
