Downtown Zapopan on wheels

Amidst more pressing matters such as elections, local media have recently ballyhooed the extension of the innovative, state-owned, Mi Bici rent-a-bike system into centro or “downtown” Zapopan. (Downtown is in quotation marks because the bustling area near the famed Basilica of the Virgin of Zapopan on the north fringe of Guadalajara lacks tall buildings, except for the basilica, and maintains the charm of a smaller pueblo, even though Zapopan is a sprawling suburb that almost encircles Guadalajara and helps account for one-third of the metropolitan area’s population of nearly 4.5 million.)
