The Greater Hartford Transit District and the Capitol Region Council of Governments have been working with a group of agencies to look into the feasibility of implementing a bike share in the Hartford region, which would include locations outside of Hartford, including Waterbury. Foursquare Integrated Transportation Planning was hired to assist the group with a study on implementing Bike Share in this region.
The plan, which is outlined in the study, proposes a regional bike share system that would include bike share stations in Hartford, West Hartford, East Hartford, Newington, New Britain and Waterbury. The first phase of the project will begin with 10 stations over a one-year period. After that the system would expand with 24 stations.

Aren't they getting a bit ahead of themselves? I can't find a safe way to bike between Forbes St. in East Hartford and Asylum Hill on my own bike, and I hear that attempting to commute from West Hartford Center to Hartford is like playing Russian Roulette. We need safe lanes to travel in first, THEN we can think about bike sharing.
