Lets take baby steps before we leap to the liability of child seats on wheels. We first have to see if the adults can handle the 2-wheel vehicle themselves.

Jersey City vote puts state's first regional bike-share program in motion

By Mike D'Onofrio/The Jersey Journal
March 13, 2014 at 12:34 PM

Jersey City put the wheels in motion for the state first regional bike-share program -- one that it will share with Hoboken and Weehawken.

The Jersey City City Council approved a 5-year contract with NJ Bikeshare LLC at its meeting Wednesday to build, operate and maintain a regional bike-sharing system between the three cities along the Hudson River.

Residents from Jersey City, Hoboken and Weehawken would also be able to give their own input on where best to place the bike stations in their communities in the coming weeks.

Bike-share programs have been gaining in popularity recently, with a program on the Rutgers-New Brunswick and Princeton University campuses, in Collingswood and one planned for Red Bank. Bike-share programs are also operating in Washington, D.C., Boston and Denver.

The yearly membership fees for the bike-share program will be roughly $90, said an aide for Mayor Steven Fulop, but the exact pricing has yet to be determined.
The bike-share program will be "really geared toward residents," said Councilwoman Candice Osborne. The pricing model will be "affordable for residents to use as their form of transportation."
There will be a minimum of 800 bikes placed throughout the three municipalities, with 102 docking stations planned.

Under the 5-year contract, the three municipalities would share 10 percent of the profits, NJ.com has reported. The program is expected to be launched over the summer at no cost to the taxpayers, Jersey City officials said.

Hoboken approved its contract for the bike-share program in late February. The program is expected to roll out in June in Hoboken.

This is what we really need for an obese, non-physical society.

We need parking banks of power-outlets for small electric cars throughout the city at popular and high density (housing) locations to do shopping and running small errands around town.

These power-outlet banks could also be used for privately owned electric vehicles (fee to charge up). The rental ones could be speed restricted.

It is worth mentioning that Citi Bike is a huge money-sink. It wouldn't work in NYC without Citi fronting loads of $$$. If a true free-market bike system can't exist in NYC (without loads of outside help) the odds are extremely slim these bike programs will ever expand without the taxpayers footing the bill.

You don't need bike lanes to be safe.

There was a huge multi-year study about bicycle safety in NYC a few years ago. One of many big findings were that mid-block collisions were rare, and that most collisions happened at intersections.

Almost 40% of crashes were due to driver inattention; another 40% were due to cyclists ignoring traffic controls.

There is also a fair amount of research which indicates that just getting more cyclists on the streets improves bicycle safety. The more cyclists are around, the more drivers expect to see them -- and yes, that matters.

Sure we do! We have the bike lane to nowhere on Grove St. that's constantly being blocked by dumbasses who are doubled parked! I see the cops that sit at Grove St. PATH in their cars, watching this happen in plain view, and they couldn't give a crap. A fine example of the bike friendly Jersey City.

Wheely good idea!
Three towns, 800 bikes to share, no cost to the taxpayers

by Harlan Porter
Reporter correspondent
Mar 09, 2014

Resized Image


The towns of Hoboken, Jersey City, and Weehawken will launch a regional bike share system this summer that will be the largest next-generation bike share system in North America. The system will feature 800 smart-bikes, 50 bike stations, and two full-service pavilions at no cost to the cities.

?We are very excited to participate in the bike share program,? said Weehawken Councilwoman Rosemary Lavagnino. ?This program will allow residents to leave their cars at home while still giving them access to Weehawken and their neighboring communities.?

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop was equally enthusiastic.

?Providing a new transportation option while simultaneously reducing pollution, traffic congestion and demand for parking is a home run,? he said, ?especially given that that it won?t cost the taxpayers a cent.?

Pricing options will include yearly, weekly, and daily memberships.

Operator is largest in North America

The program will be operated by Bike and Roll, the largest bike rental company in the United States, and will use bicycle technology manufactured by Nextbike, a leading operator and supplier of bike sharing systems with over 17,000 bicycles in 60 cities in 14 countries. E3Think is the economic, strategy and planning partner for the consortium, and investment capital will be provided by P3 Global Management, a smart city investment firm.

?Bike and Roll is excited to have been selected to operate this cutting edge bicycle sharing system for Hoboken, Jersey City and Weehawken,? said Chris Wogas, president of Bike and Roll. ?Together with our partners, we are bringing a technologically advanced network of bikes to these cities with zero cost to taxpayers. This is truly a value added program for the cities, its residents and visitors.?

The system will feature ?smart bikes,? the next generation of bike share technology. Traditional bike sharing systems rely on a ?smart dock? approach for storing bicycles, which requires expensive infrastructure for docking stations. The ?smart lock? approach relies on bicycles with built-in locks and communications equipment, providing increased flexibility at a fraction of the cost of traditional systems.

?The time is right to introduce an economic and flexible bike sharing program made in Germany to the USA,? said Ralf Kalupner, founder and managing director of nextbike GmbH. ?Bike sharing needs to be economic and that?s what we have proven for the last 10 years.?

The Nextbike Cruiser Comfort bike features a seven-gear shift, puncture-resistant tires, integrated LED lights with stand-light function, hub dynamo, kickstand, basket, bell, mudguard, chain guard, hand and coaster brakes, and height-adjustable seat.

?Bike share is the core of new urban mobility for cities around the world,? said Tom Glendening, president of E3Think. ?In contrast to the expensive technology in some markets, Nextbike?s low cost, flexible smart-bike technology offers a very, very positive future. This bike share program could very well be a model for cities across the globe.?

Towns might actually make money

Revenue sources for the program will include sponsorships, advertising, and user fees, and the cities will receive a percentage of profits after capital expenditures have been recouped.

?We see bike share programs as a cornerstone of economically and socially healthy cities,? said Jim Campbell, CEO of P3GM. ?We are thrilled to have been selected by Jersey City, Hoboken and Weehawken to bring this enormous benefit to their citizens, tourists and students alike.?

Annual memberships will include free use for the first 45 minutes of each ride. Customers will be able to register online or at solar-powered kiosks. Members will be able to rent a bicycle via a customer card, mobile application (iOS and Android) or phone call via an interactive voice response system.

The two full-service pavilions, to be located in Hoboken and Jersey City, will include a bike share station, conventional bike rental, helmets and safety support, biking equipment, and tourist information.

The contract award required the approval of the municipal councils of the three towns.

I'm all for a bike sharing program in JCs... hopefully, more cycliists in Jersey City willl lead the way to implementation of bike lanes (not sure what the time frame is for the proposed 54 miles of lanes). But, I suspect the situation for bikers trying to do the right thing by riding in the streets will only become more dangerous as traffic jams and road rage increase over Pulaski Skyway and 139 closures/renovations.

Hoboken has implemented some very good bike lanes; Jersey City needs to wake up and do the same.

Three New Jersey cities launching bike share program

February 19, 2014

HOBOKEN (WABC) -- Three towns in New Jersey are forming the largest bike share program in North America.

Hoboken, Jersey City and Weehawken will launch the system this summer.

It will feature 800 smart bikes with built-in locks and communications equipment, different from the 'Smart Dock' approach used by New York City's popular Citi Bike program.

"Bike sharing is an affordable, sustainable, and convenient transportation option," said Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer. "We are excited to partner with leading innovators to bring this next-generation system to our residents, businesses and visitors at no cost to taxpayers. I am proud to build upon our successful pilot bike share program and work with our neighbors in Jersey City and Weehawken to create a regional system."

The program will be operated by Bike and Roll, the largest bike rental company in the United States, and will use bicycle technology manufactured by Nextbike, a leading operator and supplier of bike sharing systems with over 17,000 bicycles in 60 cities in 14 countries. E3Think is the economic, strategy and planning partner for the consortium, and investment capital will be provided by P3 Global Management, a smart city investment firm.

The system will feature "smart bikes," the next generation of bike share technology.

Lets walk before we run. J.C. just got 54 miles of bike lanes approved and a program that for a single $250 application fee a bike rack can be installed if front of your business or house. I think Hoboken is considering the bike share program.

It does seem to be putting the cart before the horse. The main argument in favor of supporting bike share along with safe streets is that more bikes on the streets means safer streets. EasyRiders does do a great job of renting bikes in LSP and downtown, so there is already an existing option for those who don't own.

It is also true that measures such as lane striping and redesign of streets to be pedestrian/cyclist friendly (as did not happen on Columbus) seem like first steps. If you care about this, please visit BikeJC.org, a volunteer group which has been around 2 years but needs more active participation from those also frustrated with dangerous local streets in order to get more done.

And yes, sidewalk riding is currently prohibited. But that doesn't mean the law couldn't be changed to have reasonable sidewalk riding, where the cyclist obeys low-speed limits and defers to pedestrians, as other municipalities have done. It just takes those who are interested to get involved in active organizing.

Jersey City law. As in most cities I'm aware of, bicycles are considered moving vehicles, therefore subject to traffic regulations and not belonging on the sidewalk with pedestrians. From the JC Municipal code:

? 242-9.1. - Definition; bicycle riders subject to traffic regulations; riding bicycles on business district public sidewalks prohibited. [Adopted 9-9-1998 by Ord. No. 98-105]

A. As used herein, "bicycle" means a vehicle propelled by human power upon which a person may ride, having two tandem wheels, either of which is twelve (12) inches or more in diameter, and may be any vehicle generally recognized as a bicycle though equipped with two front or rear wheels.

It's not enforced, of course. And I believe they make exception for children.

I do wish that grownups would make a reasonable effort to ride in the street. We're never going to change the culture if there aren't more riders out there. It can certainly be unsafe to pedestrians to have cyclists on the sidewalk. The bike share is a laughable idea to me, where bike safety and accessibility stands in JC right now.

Can the City please try a lane on Montgomery or Grand? It could be shared with buses. Can we start somewhere?

Sometimes we are forced to ride on Sidewalks. I guess we should go out of our way and find the next closest parallel street in proximity to the route we are taking. Baldwin Ave. between Academy & Pavonia is one example of a need for bike lanes. There is no shoulder especially on the east side of the street on that same side there are no businesses along the bridge. The sidewalk seems to be the only answer when riding there and competing with the pedestrian traffic is distracting and dangerous. One person got knocked off their bike by a hit & run driver. The rider was for the most part ok the bike was not, it was totaled. The city should meet the cyclists half way and provide adequate lanes in both directions of the compass in various of the city so bicycle usage will become more of a norm here in J.C.


You're never forced to ride on the sidewalks. You choose to.

Hoboken allows bicycle riding on sidewalks as long as the riders defer to the pedestrians. There is signage prohibiting bicycle riding on sidewalks here in Jersey City.

This is terrific news ! I have a folding bike that I use to get around town with but there are times I am without the bike using either a car, train, or both. Perhaps the car is parked too far from the train station a bike share option would come in handy.

Why is the JC Administration taking part in a "bike share survey" when they have done nothing to address bicycle safety or implement bicycle lanes? Window dressing, I suppose.

Bike Shares are established up in cities that already have well-established commuter cycling cultures or tourist/ recreational areas where people want to rent bikes for short rides (as in Montreal). All of these places have dedicated bike lanes or paths separated from the street, not to mention a different car culture and fewer potholes. In Jersey City people are breaking the law to ride on the sidewalk because they are scared. The only place I could even picture a public Bike Share is LSP, and there is an existing small business (Easy Riders?) that already provides rentals there.

Let's be real. Start with a bicycle safety survey and start improving the city for those who do ride.

Hoboken and Jersey City are both doing surveys to help shape bike-sharing programs they hope to launch as early as summer

Published: Friday, January 27, 2012, 3:00 AM
By Travis Fedschun/The Jersey Journal

the Mile Square City could have a new transportation alternative by this summer.

The city of Hoboken has posted a bike share survey to collect information from residents on the possibility of installing a bike-sharing system in time for this summer. Jersey City, meanwhile, hopes to have the survey up on its website and Facebook page today.

Bike sharing is a system of stations and bicycles throughout an area that provides bike rentals to members who join and pay at a computerized kiosk or on the Internet.

With a validated ?key,? a member can unlock a bike, go for a ride, and then return it to any station within the system.

Hoboken Transportation and Parking Director Ian Sacs said the city is working with the Hudson County Transportation Management Association to be the first city in Hudson County to implement bike sharing.

?One of the reasons we?re really excited about it are really unique conditions here,? Sacs said. ?We have really unique commuter patterns here, we have people walking to Hoboken Terminal every day, so imagine all those people, and in the middle of the day all of the shoppers and tourists.?

Sacs added the city hopes to award a contract to operate the program by late spring. The city, he said, is ?trying hard? to have the system operating by the summer, the time of greatest use.

Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said yesterday the bike share study is being headed by Hudson County in conjunction with Jersey City and Hoboken.
?Like Hoboken, the city of Jersey City will be promoting this survey on our website and our Facebook page,? she added.

The type of bicycles to be used are described as a ?utility meant for transportation,? which would not be attractive to the normal thief, Sacs said.

Bike-sharing systems have been a growing form of transportation in a number of cities across the nation. Washington, D.C., and Denver both installed systems recently. New York City will open a system spanning all five boroughs this summer.

Hoboken has been installing bike lanes to encourage more people to use two-wheel transportation.
?One of the biggest questions people ask in Hoboken is, ?Where do I keep my bike when I?m not home?? A lot of people would use bikes if they were available,? he said.

Hudson County may have a new transportation alternative by this summer.

FYI, I inquired about bike station in NJ, specifically Jersey City. This is their response (basically it ain't gonna happen unless the JC government is involved and I doubt that will ever happen until hell freezes.


Thank you for your interest in our bike share suggestion map. The site is a project of the NYC Department of Transportation. We can only contract Alta Bicycle Share to operate in the five boroughs, so leaving New Jersey suggestions on the map would misleading. However, we do plan to pass along all of the New Jersey suggestions to local governments in Hoboken and Jersey City, which have expressed interest in introducing bike share as well.

Subject: [Bike Share portal comment] What about NJ (Jersey City and Hoboken)?

Are you not honoring votes for anyplace in NJ? Yesterday I suggested two locations in Jersey City and today those suggestion pin drops are not there. We desperately could use this bike sharing service in Jersey City.

So while the suggestion map is being run by the city of New York (and they keep deleting rental station suggestions outside of New York City) they did send an email containing this:

"we do plan to pass along all of the New Jersey suggestions to local governments in Hoboken and Jersey City, which have expressed interest in introducing bike share as well."

So that is to say, everyone should continue suggesting stations in Hudson County because in theory this data is still getting sent to the privately run Alta Bicycle Share, the contractor building the network.

Minneapolis/St. Paul, too. Was there over Memorial Day weekend and the system is fantastic. The Twin Cities also have many miles of rail to trails through the heart of the cities and frequent rental stations along these trails. It's almost as though cyclists have their own universe of roads - you can get around in many cases with very little use of regular roads. Seems as though as a city such as ours, with a storied railroad history, would be able to cobble together a decent amount of rail-trails.
