Council will hear a report from staff next week regarding the implementation and roll-out of a new public bike share system in Vancouver.
It’s an exciting program that staff have thought through very carefully, working to meet the demand for new cycling infrastructure and add Vancouver to the more than 500 cities worldwide with bike share programs already in place. A recent poll found 70% support in Metro Vancouver for a public bike share program.
1500 new shared bicycles will be placed around Downtown, the West End, Mount Pleasant, Fairview, and Kitsilano. The bikes will be placed at 125 accessibly located docking stations, sited every 2-3 blocks.
