What is a Bike Share? Bike share is a network of bicycles that allows users to make short trips quickly, conveniently and affordably. Bike share is in over 60 American cities. A bicycle share system (e.g. 700 bicycles) would have a profound impact on improving New Orleans’ transportation network.
What impact will it have on New Orleans? As you know, the benefits of bicycling are many. The bike share extends those benefits to everyday people who don’t usually ride bicycles. More bicycles on the road have created safer streets in communities around the world. Bicycle share gets more people on bicycles and improves safety for everyday riders.
Come learn how you can get a bike station in your neighborhood!!
