Where Should Memphis Put Our Bike Share Stations?

Posted by Holly Whitfield | December 13th 2017 1479 0

When Memphis’ bike share program launches in March, where should they put the stations? Explore Bike Share is giving Memphians the chance to pick where you can pick up and turn in these bikes.

All you have to do is click on the map here to mark your suggested locations.

If you’re not familiar, a bike share program is a fleet of bikes that you can self-pay to rent out from stations, then return to any other station. They have these in tons of other cities – usually they’re named after a sponsor, i.e., Citi Bike.

The stations might look something like the graphic above (provided by DCA). Anyways, the important part is that you go now to the website and drop virtual pins on locations where you think a station would be most helpful. The team that’s putting together the program is using this to plan where the first stations will be.

If you want to read more, you can read past posts here and here. It’s easy to make your station suggestions, and then you can see where everyone else has picked and “like” those, too.

Don’t forget to submit your own bike share station ideas:

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    Waste of time (and money). Memphis is not a biking community. They tried opening up bike lanes along Riverside drive a couple of years back (closing off two of the car lanes) …. most days not a single bike on them (according to the city). I’ll post again after they rip these things out ….

    You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make them drink.

    Now if you expanded Gus’ downtown restaurant …. then you would see some movement!!
