Montreal recently inaugurated it's bicycle-share program--the largest in North America--according to the New York Times. The program is called, Bixi, a portmanteau of "bicycle" and "taxi."

Yeah, I think these program, if they are done right, can give car-dependant people an opportunity to see what they're missing.

BTW, I just did a little blog about a New York Times article on Portland.

The bike looks cool. The lady looks cool. I hope that it is planned well (that can make a huge difference and be observed at different bike sharing systems in Europe) and works well!
