June 25, 2012 | WSJ | by THOMAS J. CAMPANELLA.

The rollout this summer of New York's first bicycle-share program will be the most visible achievement yet of the city's capable commissioner of transportation, Janette Sadik-Khan. Funded by Citigroup and Mastercard, the Citi Bike System will make available 10,000 bicycles for rent and return at any of 600 stations throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn. With Citi Bike, Ms. Sadik-Khan has spun a gossamer new transportation web across much of the city, a healthful and sustainable alternative to getting around by car.

Cinderella Dreams, Shoestring Budget? No Problem -

If consumers can rent a movie by mail, or wheels on a whim, why not a
couture gown should the occasion strike? That's the concept behind Rent
the Runway, a website launched in November 2009 that promises to give
"every woman the opportunity to be Cinderella for the night," says
co-founder Jennifer Hyman. Customers can choose from an array of
designer duds for one-time wear at a fraction of the frocks' retail
price tag. (A little black dress worth $1,250, for instance, rents for
$150, plus shipping and $5 insurance.) Returns are as simple as dropping
the Dolce & Gabbana or Diane von Furstenberg into a pre-paid
mailing envelope. To date, Rent the Runway appears to be leading a
charmed life of its own, signing up 800,000 members, growing February
sales at 10 times last year's rate, securing $17 million in venture
capital and becoming cash-flow positive in under a year.

Ping - We Rent Movies, So Why Not College Textbooks?
July 4, 2009 | - | By MIGUEL HELFT., a
company that rents textbooks to college students. The textbook business
is wildly inefficient. With demand for good deals on textbooks running
high, Chegg’s success comes in large part from being able to address
those inefficiencies. While Chegg primarily rents books, it is also
essentially acting as a kind of “market maker,” gathering books from
sellers at the end of a semester and renting — or sometimes selling —
them to other students at the start of a new one. That provides
liquidity to the market.
