Put The Rubber to the Road: Bike Sharing Is Coming to Detroit
Ever wanted to bike Detroit, or just bike from work to a hot new lunch spot and back again without having to deal with the hassle of owning a bike? Your wish will come true soon.
Detroit will get more $1 million to launch a public bike share program, possibly in the spring of 2016.
Detroit’s funding comes form the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments, which is also funding 13 other transportation projects around Metro Detroit. In total, SEMCOG is planning on spending over $6.4 million on these projects.
“While these are 14 independent projects, they’re part of connecting our region through a system of trails and bike paths. These are quality-of-life projects that impact us all,” said Kathleen Lomako, SEMCOG’s executive director.
