The City Bike program rolled into New York last spring and proved a hit, with nearly 12,000 New Yorkers signing up for annual memberships. Since 2010, over a dozen US cities have introduced bike-share programs.
There’re plenty of bike stations near parks and other car-free areas. The programs we looked at in major cities work the same way. You buy a 24-hour pass. During the time, you get an unlimited number of 30-minute rides. If you go over your given half-hour ride time, you start paying fees for each following 30-minute period. Here are some of the biggest bike-share program in America.
Minneapolis: Nice Ride Minnesota
Station : Minnehaha Ave. & Minnehaha Pkwy
How much: $ 6 for a 24-hour pass.
How it works: The first 30 minutes are included in the pass; $ 1.50 for the second 30 minutes; $ 4.50 for the third 30 minutes; later $ 6 for every half an hour.
Chicago: Divvy Bikes
Station : Lakeshore Drive and Monroe St; also Museum Campus
How much: $ 7 for a 24-hour pass, with unlimited 30-minute trips.
How it works: The first 30 minutes are included in the pass; $ 2 for the second 30 minutes; $ 6 for the third 30 minutes; later $ 8 for every half an hour.

I woke up the other day to a phone call from a taxi driver who had my friend’s cell phone. My friend had apparently left it in the taxi the night before. The driver had called others but I was the first one who had answered.
It was a rainy morning, which for taxi drivers in this big city was surely a very busy time. He asked me where he could drop the cell phone off. I told him the street where I lived at and jumped out of bed and got dressed so I could meet him on the corner without delay. I guessed that if he had taken a passenger or two, he could have made some good money from driving all that distance.
When he arrived, I found nobody else was in the taxi. I thanked him and blessed him for having such a kind and beautiful soul. Meanwhile, I was so happy for my friend who had only recently moved to this country, thinking how important his cell phone was to him, especially for a newcomer!
I asked the taxi driver for his name so my friend could thank him in person. He said my blessings and thanks were all that he needed. Then he drove off.
ailed my friend telling him I had his phone and then met up with him to tell him how I had received it. Along with the phone I handed him a smile card on behalf of the taxi driver and myself. My friend smiled even wider after reading the card and said he couldn’t believe such kindness existed in this big city.
Personally, individuals can make a difference. Now my friend can’t wait to pay it forward! After all, action speaks louder than words.
