The City of St. Petersburg and Coast Bike Share will host a kickoff meeting for the St. Petersburg Bike Share System on Wednesday, June 15, 2016. The meeting, to be held at the Sunshine Center at 6:30 PM, will introduce details about the system, how bike share will work in St. Petersburg and projected timelines.
The public is invited to attend and suggest potential station locations throughout the proposed operational area.
Coast Bike Share’s expansion to St. Petersburg will feature 300 bikes, owned by the City, across what’s anticipated to be 30 stations, doubling its current footprint. St. Petersburg continues its successful active transportation programs and increases urban mobility with Bike Share by making bicycles readily available for short to medium trips.
The program will build on the City’s extensive network of approximately 115 miles of bicycle facilities citywide and the Healthy St. Pete Initiative that encourages residents and visitors to EAT, PLAY, SHOP and LIVE healthier. With hundreds of bikes around town, it’s transit at your speed, a healthy, fun and affordable way to breeze around town.
