Proposed bike-share program would offer 500 bikes at launch

Seattle Times news partner Seattle Bike Blog has outlined the details for a bike-share program in the city that would be launched as soon as late summer 2013.

The project involves representatives from local governmental agencies, Cascade Bicycle Club and others.

Here are some of the key elements of the plan, according to the blog post:

Puget Sound Bike Share likely to be a non-profit organization.

• The launch would include 500 bikes at 50 stations downtown and nearby neighborhoods such as the U-District and Capitol Hill. That would be followed by 600 more bikes to complete Phase 1.

• Challenges for the plan: the state’s law requiring bike helmets; locating the bike stations.

• Membership costs could be $5 a day, $30 a month or $75 a year.

For a map of possible station locations and other information about the plan, see Seattle Bike Blog’s post.
