Who Will Be the Second City Council Member to Sign Up for Bike-Share?

While current and former City Council transportation chairs James Vacca and John Liu reacted to bike-share with paranoia and fear, at least one council member was breaking out the credit card: Brooklyn’s Brad Lander posted this tweet after signing up for a Citi Bike subscription yesterday.

Any of Lander’s colleagues have a lower membership number than he does? If not, who’s next?

  • buford puser

    Gale brewer

  • Brooklynite

    Tish James.

  • Eric McClure

    Are they hydrogen powered? No? That rules out Lew from Brooklyn.

  • Cyclin Rep

  • Ha ! I forgot about that. And that’s how politicians get away with obstructing practical solutions with irrelevant fantasies….

  • J

City Council Members John Liu and David Yassky bike to City Hall at a press event yesterday (the other 49 took a pass), as Paul Steely White brings up the rear in style. The weather may not be fully cooperating, but we know Streetsbloggers won’t be deterred on National Bike to Work Day. We want […]
