On Tuesday, August 23 at 6:30 at the Sunshine Center, Coast and the City of St. Petersburg, will be hosting a public meeting and information session on the program, as well as asking for input to determine the system’s final hub locations.
Over the past two months, dozens of hubs have been suggested and hundreds of votes accumulated. We’ve narrowed all of this input down to 50 locations and need your help in choosing the final 30.
The meeting will cover the basics of the Coast system coming to St. Pete, how to get rolling, and how we determined the top hubs. From there we’ll open up the room for questions and a design charrette of sorts, in which you’ll be given the ability to choose which stations must absolutely stay, and those that can afford to go.
If you could, please visit our survey to provide some quick preliminary input before attending at http://survey.CoastStPete.com/
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 Coast’s current footprint. St. Petersburg aims to increase 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.
