Olympia should start a public bike system

Biking is a great way to commute. A public bike system in Olympia would be a great asset to the city. New York, Seattle and many college campuses across America all have successful bike programs, so why not Olympia?

An affordable and green bike program in our city would allow both tourists and citizens to enjoy our local trails and parks. It would also prevent people from having to worry about their bikes being stolen. Stations could be placed in easily accessible places near trails and parks as well as at bus stops.

A public bike system would allow everybody in Olympia to commute safely, cheaply, and actively while helping our beautiful environment.
