Bike-sharing booming after major expansion

Even with the added costs and restrictions, Houston’s program is more generous than those in other cities, officials said.

“You’ll see any of the bike programs that have more than 20 stations – they are going to limit that time to 30 minutes,” said Will Rub, director of Houston’s program.

The additional kiosks and bikes require a full-time mechanic and daily oversight to keep bikes evenly distributed among the stations, officials said.

Already, some of the new locations are seeing surprising growth, Rub said.

The station at Sabine Street and Memorial Drive, at the bridge where some of the city’s best skyline photos are snapped, is seeing immense use, he said.
