Places: Shanghai Bike-Sharing

Sean Leow of PSFK Shanghai and Neocha blogged recently on Shanghai’s new bike sharing program, launched in preparation for the 2010 World Expo – “Better City, Better Life.” Currently set-up as a trial outside a Metro station in Pudong, they hope to expand it to 800 Metro stations, and 2700 residential and business sites by 2012. The bikes are supplied by Shanghai Forever Bicycle Company, whose famous “Flying Pigeon” once dominated the roads before cars became more prevalent.

Also, we’ll be blogging from Asia October 21st through the 29th, so drop us a line with any more stories like this.
