Vancouver Bike Share Program

Next week council will hear a report from regarding the implementation and roll-out of a new public bike share system in Vancouver, which is slated to open for business in 2014. 

SEE ALSO:

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. However, the B.C. mandatory helmet laws will impact the success of the bike share program, despite what city hall may think.

In total 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, each station will also have a helmet dispensing machine.
