Take a bike to work

Wait, let's find another word for "take."

Article in NY Times today talks about New York's plan to start a bike-share program. Many complications, including concerns from residents about loss of sidewalk space.

Good luck to them. How many days did it take for all the bikes in Little Rock's little bike-share program to disappear? Or was it just hours? Such programs are now more sophisticated, of course, with computerized kiosks and rental fees. The honor system proved non-viable. Photo is of a bike-share rack in Montreal.
