Hangzhou, China, a city with a population of over 6.77 million people, is home to one of the coolest bike share systems in the world. With more than 50,000 bikes and 2,050 bike-share stations that are a thousand feet or less from each other, it's easy to see why biking around here is a popular choice. To top that, the first hour of biking is free!


Not only is it a great alternative means of transportation, but it is also integrated with different sources of transportation, solving the "last mile" problem. If you just got off the bus and you're still a few blocks from your destination, the first 90 minutes on the bike is free. Getting around will be so much better if more cities around the world would adopt a bike share culture and system like this.
