Bike-sharing programs getting more popular

Bike-sharing programs are getting more and more popular around the world. This article takes a closer look on the history of bike-sharing and some of the cities in which this ecofriendly mode of transportation flourishes. 
"Today more than 500 cities in 49 countries host advanced bike-sharing programs, with a combined fleet of over 500,000 bicycles."
Urban transport advisor Peter Midgley notes that “bike sharing has experienced the fastest growth of any mode of transport in the history of the planet.” And the size and growth of these bike-sharing programs are amazing. One Chinese city's bike-sharing system could grow to 175,000 bikes by 2020.
