the frugal traveler checks out NYC's bike share prices for visitors. the day rate became available this past sunday. the cost? well, seems more than the cost of a subway trip and a transfer. since these bikes are meant to be transportation alternatives, and not for recreation, this seems a little strange. but it is new york after all, where things are going to be expensive. london, a city some say is even more expensive than nyc (i've never been to london, so i can't say for sure), costs £3, or about $4.50. nyc? $10+
maybe since these bikes come with their own locking mechanism when you park them, it's worth it? makes me wonder what SF will do with its own pricing whenever we get bikeshares of this magnitude.
hmm. not sure what to think about this development right now, but check out the article for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments!
