In London, An Empty Underground Tunnel Could Become A Biker's Paradise 12.2.2015 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
If this idea becomes a reality, it could transform urban transport from the ground up. And it may be coming to London first. In a concept from the design firm Gensler , unused and empty subway tunnels would be converted into underground bike paths. The engineers want to deck out the tunnels with cutting-edge tech, more specifically with a floor that could light the tunnels by generating electricity from the footsteps of the people walking on it. To start with, the designers want to make their vision a reality in London's Tube, in an unused section of the Piccadilly Line and a piece of the Jubilee Line running from Green Park to Charing Cross. Underground bunkers left over from the Second World War could also be folded into Gensler's concept. The idea is not without its problems. While underground bike paths are a safer alternative to street traffic on the surface, underground air supply could prove problematic. And in case of an accident, emergency services could require considerably longer to arrive at ...

Bike Share Is Growing Up 26.11.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
In just four years, bike share has gone from being the fantasy of a few enthusiasts to a practical and low-cost way for tens of thousands of people in American cities, both large and small, to get around. While some cities have created their own bike share systems, many have partnered with Alta Bicycle Share, a company based out of Portland, Oregon. Alta runs bike share systems in New York City, Washington, D.C., Boston, Chicago and Chattanooga, really inventing these systems as they go. Like many start-ups, Alta Bicycle Share has never turned a profit and has also gotten blasted in the press for hiccups in the roll-out of its services ( see the ongoing complaints with CitiBike in NYC ).
