LA Weighs Public Bike Share Program (Again)

New, 23 comments

2009-03-bikeshareWith bike sharing programs in cities like Paris and Portland (which have had a few ups and downs) offering alternative transportation options, Los Angeles is weighing its own bike share program. The city's Department of Transportation has released an RFI (Request for Interest) on its Business Assistance Virtual Network for a public bicycle sharing program: "The City of Los Angeles, Department of Transportation is soliciting Letters of Interest from bicycle vendors/manufacturers, public transportation contractors, advertising companies, and other entities interested in developing, installing, operating, and maintaining a bicycle sharing program for the City of Los Angeles." Of course, we've heard this before, and heard from those bikers who think the money should be spent on other bike-specific items rather than a bike-sharing program. [ecoangeleno]
