From B’more Bikes:
This morning, Mayor Rawlings-Blake celebrated the approval by the Board of Estimates of an exclusive negotiating agreement between the City and B-Cycle, a company which specializes in bike sharing programs across the nation. Bike sharing is a vital transportation option that provides bikes to the public for short-term use. Today’s Board of Estimates approval brings Baltimore one step closer to operating
a successful bike share program in the city.
The exclusive negotiating privilege provides B-Cycle with the opportunity to secure
sponsors and recruit membership in the system. Within 180 days, B-Cycle must enter
into a contract that guarantees no annual operating expense to the City. The City of
Baltimore looks forward to having a vital bike sharing program, which will provide an
inexpensive transportation option, reduce traffic congestion, and create a healthier
environment for everyone.
