A B-cycle station in San Antonio – curiously placed on the sidewalk instead of along roadways. Leo Suarez.

Field Research, Riding Around on the San Antonio B-cycle

San Antonio’s B-cycle program, operated and maintained by the nonprofit San Antonio Bike Share corporation, has received national attention in recent months and weeks as more cities seek out alternative, environmentally friendly transit programs. New York rolled out its similar bike share program, Citi Bike, and Austin’s B-cycle should begin operation by the end of the year. 

The seemingly ever-expanding program has become another success story for the larger B-cycle company – a collaboration between Humana, Trek Bicycle Corporation, and Crispin Porter + Bogusky – recieveing accolades and awards.
