China Shows Leadership in Bike Share and Greenways

This article describes how cities in China are embracing bicycle sharing systems and the establishment of greenways in order to improve mobility and quality of life. The first bicycle sharing system in China was opened four years ago. Since then cities have established a variety of high-tech systems that include automated docks operated with smart cards and bicycles with direct drive pedals. Chinese cities are also implementing greenways and promoting them as walking and bicycling networks as well as public space. More than 6,000 km of greenways have opened in the past two years, and another 14,000 km are in the planning stage.
