Calgary - Bike share program divides city hall

Aldermen have taken steps toward launching a public bike share program as soon as mid-2014, but even the city official who oversees cycling improvements won't promise there will be enough on-street bike lanes in time.

Two concerns were at the heart of a debate that divided not only aldermen, but also cycling groups: whether city taxes should be an optional source of funding the multimillion-dollar program, and whether planning for a launch in two years isn't premature in a city that lacks any separated cycling lanes in the core.
