Bike-share programs aren’t profitable but chip away at emissions

But some say money can’t define bike-share programs’ success. Reminder, said Robert Noland, a professor of planning and public policy at Rutgers University: All transportation costs governments money.

“So it’s fairly cheap for a city or the state to subsidize these. Cheaper than, for example, subsidizing public transit,” Noland said.

And even cheaper than subsidizing infrastructure for cars.
