I write part-time for Big Think and was contacted recently by a PR rep from PBSC Urban Solutions, the company that designs/supplies the bikes and stations used by Capital Bikeshare and other cities’ systems. They recently unveiled a new family of bicycle models that could be integrated into existing systems should the local company be interested in expanding. Included in this new set is an electric bicycle, which I imagine would be very enticing to folks who trek the various hills in town.
Not sure if local DC vehicle regulations would accept a motor-aided bike, but it certainly is interesting. I’ll reiterate that it’s not for certain that Capital Bikeshare would bring in the newer, lighter bikes — just that they now have the option. As a daily rider, I hope they make the move.”
