Good morning. I'm David Greene. After much anticipation, New York City has kicked off its bike share program. Riders can pick up a bike, take a ride and return it to a different spot. So far it's been a bumpy ride. About a hundred keys that members use to unlock bikes were lost in the mail. And, as workers were loading the $825 bikes in for the first day of service this week, someone snagged one and rode off.
We presume it was a thief though maybe someone just angry he hadn't received his key. You're listening to MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
