The City of Spokane launched a Bikeshare pilot program in September and is gathering information from citizens to help determine whether the City should have a permanent bikeshare program and how it should be structured.
Citizens are invited to learn more about bikeshare and provide feedback at a public open house:
Bikeshare essentially is a collection of bikes – and in some cases, scooters – available to be checked out and used for trips for a small rental fee. For the Spokane pilot program, bikeshare company, Lime, has offered bikes, electric-assist bikes, and electric scooters for rent. In about the last five weeks, 25,000 riders have taken nearly 74,000 rides on a bikeshare bike or scooters.
