Learn about bike share plans in Providence!

The city is launching its bike share program later this year with 400 dockless, electric JUMP bikes! You’ll have a chance to see an e-bike, hear about the program, and share your ideas about bike share hub locations at 4 open houses hosted by the Providence Dept. of Planning and Development and Sustain PVD. The downtown event will be on Monday, March 19th from noon to 2 pm in the first floor of the Doorley Municipal Building, 444 Westminster Street. All are welcome to drop by anytime!

Other open houses are scheduled in the evenings from 6:30 to 8 pm on Monday, March 19th at the West Broadway Neighborhood Association office; on Tuesday, March 20th at Brown RISD Hillel; and on Wednesday, March 21st at the SWAP Community Room. Find addresses and more details in the city’s flyer.

If you miss the open houses, you’ll have an opportunity to weigh in on bike share hub locations during an online campaign at the end of the month. To stay up to date on plans to launch the program, follow the Planning Department on Facebook.
