Milwaukee’s First Bike-sharing Station
A demonstration bike-sharing station will open on July 1st at Discovery World.
On Friday we reported that a demonstration bike-sharing station was going be installed at Discovery World in the near future. That future has arrived. The B-Cycle station is now being installed and if all goes as planned will open on Monday July 1. This 20 dock station is solar powered and will have 10 bikes in 2013 with an additional 10 to be added during the 2014 rollout. The station will allow the public to learn about bike-sharing, try out the bikes, and build awareness for the project.
Correction: The story originally stated the funding was from the City of Milwaukee Office of Environmental Sustainability, this was incorrect. OES’ involvement in the station according to Mainwood is only moral support for the bike-sharing project. The funds for this station have come out of the private contributions the organization has raised.
