Bike sharing: it’s a good thing

I spent my Thanksgiving in beautiful Mexico City, eating turkey tortas and marveling at historic architecture in the Americas’ oldest and largest city. I also got a chance to see how Ecobici, its new bike sharing system, works; I saw hundreds of people enjoying the city’s protected bike lanes, and rebalancing trucks shuttling bikes around. Mexico’s officials are very eager to show off their accomplishments with Ecobici; they were super duper helpful in talking with our class and also with other curious Americans!

Martha!Here in Virginia, our class has divided into three teams that are crafting an elegant (and hefty!) final report and presentation. We’ll have a lot of information to share in December.
