Bike Sharing hits NYC this fall

From Engadget (Read article here)

"Social Bicycles is a bike sharing system using an iPhone app, the system allows users to drop off, locate, and borrow a bike nearly anywhere. The bikes are equipped with a GPS  device which is locked to one of the wheels, and when the bike is locked, it's locatable using the app, so that someone can borrow it; when it's in use and unlocked, it doesn't appear in the app. "

One of the great things about Social Bicycles is that these bikes can be locked up at any already existing bike racks. Making it convenient for the user and much easier and less expensive to run.
