It's no secret that Phoenix tends to arrive to the LA and NYC trend parties a little on the tardy side. Lucky for downtown Phoenix residents, that isn't the case when it comes to the latest big-city trend of bike share programs.

New York recently launched its bike share service, Citi Bike, and Phoenix is already working on its own version, which is scheduled to roll out this December.

Phoenix is a great city for bicycle commuting, fitness and lifestyle. Canals and bike lanes are everywhere!

Soon there would be missing bike signs across Downtown and heat related injuries.

Tony... there is also a car sharing program in both Tempe and in downtown Phoenix. Look up ZipCar :)

Interesting... In San Diego, there is a CAR share program. Guess Phoenix is still pretty far behind....

Hmm.  I wonder why they didn't choose to launch this program in August?
