Every traveller knows that NYC can be one of the most hectic places to drive in the entire world. After so many years of constant bumper-to-bumper traffic, the city had partnered with large companies to produce bike share systems and scooter rentals to help NYC become more of a traversable city. There is also the subway and many other travel alternatives, but biking helps people stay active and is generally much better for our environment.
