I loved using this when I worked in Washington D.C. This will be fantastic to have in SLC. Wish the time limit was a full hour instead of 30 minutes, but the hubs seem well placed so it shouldn't be a problem. Good work SLC!

And people won't steal these bikes?

How will they make sure all the kiosks are not emptied? Are they seriously going to use a truck to drive the bikes back to their kiosks? What a waste of gasoline. This will end up as a waste of taxpayer money, just like UTA is a waste of our money. I am not in favor of this one bit. If you need a bike, buy one of your own and don't steal from taxpayers to fund your environmentalist agenda. We all know who this comes from.

I saw that program at Wash DC and they have this first 30 min for free and yes if stolen when it is not locked at the hub. Yes it will be a fee when it is not return and will be reported stolen which I don't know the cost. Read the link which will explain how it works and other details.

I say it is a good program and $5 for 30 minutes sounds fare.

1) Bikes are secured at the kiosks, and unlocked once you check them out
2) Not a taxpayer funded project. Keep your ill-informed rhetoric to yourself until you check the facts. Assumptions are bad.
3) Anyone who was in Utah this winter should have an "environmentalist agenda"
