The Raleigh bikeshare program just rolled one step closer to reality. Last month, potential vendors exhibited their bicycles on Fayetteville Street. The teams were there in person to field questions by the selection committee and other city representatives. According to Trung Vo, Department of Transportation Bicycle and Pedestrian Program Manager, the selection committee will take a recommendation to City Council this month on June 6th. City Council allocated funds for the program more than a year ago, but it must decide on a company to implement and operate it. Once in place, the public will be able to use the bicycles through self-service kiosks.
