Bike share program starts in Albany
ALBANY - Need a ride in Albany?
Saturday kicked off the City's Bike Share Week.
There will be 25 bicycles available for use between 10am and 8pm at the following locations:
Washington Park (near the intersection of Hudson Ave and Washington Park Rd)
Lark Street (between Washington and Madison Avenues)
Tricentennial Square in Downtown Albany (on Broadway between Steuben and Columbia Streets)
This week is part of a month-long Capital Region Bikeshare Month pilot program which runs from July 10th to August 15th 2014 sponsored by the Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC). The Cities of Schenectady, Troy, and Saratoga Springs took part each with a week of free bikeshare. CDTC selected Buffalo BikeShare to provide the bikes and staff.
"This bikeshare pilot program is a great opportunity for people to check out what bikeshare is and see how it can improve their ability to get around the Capital City," said Kate Lawrence, Sustainability Planner for the City of Albany.
