Proposed Locations of New Haven Bike-Share Program

Via Caroline Smith of SeeClickFix:

"people of color or those with low incomes all too often just don't have access [to bike share programs]. kiosks aren't placed in their neighborhoods, or the streets just aren't bike-friendly enough to want to use them. & most bike-share systems require a credit card or a several hundred dollar hold on one's bank account. one in twelve households in the U.S. are unbanked, making bike share — and the benefits of convenience, mobility, and health that come with it — immediately inaccessible to a large portion of the populace." - Elly Blue ‪#‎bikenomics‬
