The World’s 6 Best Bike Share Programs

By  | 

Hangzhou, China

By far the largest bike share program on the planet, there are nearly 78,000 bicycles in rotation in Hangzhou, China. With plans of expansion after a local grant of the equivalent of 28 million USD, the program hopes to add another 100,000 bicycles by 2020. And amazingly enough, the bike share program only began in 2008.
