June 14, 2010 By

According to MinnPost.com, a new bike-sharing program kicked off this week in Minneapolis, when Nice Ride begins offering greenish and blue bikes for short jaunts around the city. Hundreds of the bikes are available at 60 kiosks around the downtown Minneapolis area through the nonprofit program. To ride you need a subscription, available online. The cost ranges from $5 for 24 hours to $60 a year. Then the first half hour of riding is always free; the next half hour costs $1.50, and the next half hour is $3. Riders use a credit  card to pay at the kiosk pay station.
