Raleigh considers bike share program
Posted March 20, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — Raleigh is studying whether it is worthwhile to create a program for residents to borrow and return bicycles from shared locations across the city.
A "bike share" program would "increase the use of bicycles for relatively short-range travel, reduce the negative impacts of single-occupancy vehicles, and encourage a shift to other modes of transportation," according to a city news release about the study.
Residents can chime in online, at www.bikeraleigh.org/bikeshare, in person at a forum April 10 at 6 p.m. in Cobblestone Hall, 215 Wolfe St. in City Market, or by calling the Office of Transportation Planning at 919-996-2155.
