Well we have seen those smart poles throughout the CBD with the bike rings on them – and slowly they are filling up with bikes. The problem being is that the smartpoles are not anywhere outside the CBD – well the council have come up with a unique solution. They are going to replace the existing street poles and put rings on them. Also for the rollout BikeSydney, Bikeast and MASSbug will be recommending where they are placed. Check out the photos below.

So show your support for Sydney’s pedal-powered transport option by taking a free ride today.
As part of Jetstar’s launch of cheap flights to Asia, Jetstar has sponsored pedapod in Sydney for 1 week to offer free passenger service rides in the CBD. This is a “hail and ride” service, just like a taxi. You can use the service to get between city offices, to get between shops and public transport, to get between entertainment areas and public transport hubs, or just to enjoy a ride for the experience.
Jordan Baker reported in the Sydney Morning Herald today that,
|The discount airline’s website yesterday buckled under the demand for $169 one-way flights to Bali – including taxes. Return trips to Vietnam were selling for $398, and one-way flights to Osaka for $249….Everyday, all-inclusive, one-way fares range from $409 for Bali, $489 for Ho Chi Minh City and $549 for Osaka.
…Each passenger receives a bottle of water on boarding, and a water cooler is onboard for refills.
