City of Vancouver: bike share program

The City of Vancouver is currently looking at introducing a bike share program.

The two open houses have passed, but you can still take a peek at the display boards and provide your input.

From the City’s website:

Next Steps:

In April 2011, the City released a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEOI) to invite applications from interested parties to develop, install, own, operate and finance a Public Bicycle System in the City of Vancouver, targeting launch in spring 2012 or earlier. City staff are reviewing the responses to this RFEOI and will present their results to Council this summer. Council will then decide whether or not to pursue a PBS in Vancouver.

If a PBS implementation is pursued, additional public consultation will take place in the fall of 2011.
