Decatur Won’t Participate in Atlanta Bike Share Program For NowDecatur Metro | March 5, 2014 | 9:54 am
You may recall the Atlanta-Decatur Bike Share Feasibility Study that was released in January 2013, which got folks buzzing about a bike share program that stretched across Atlanta and into downtown Decatur. Don’t recall? You can still pour over it’s PDFed pages HERE.
All caught up? You also may have heard just a month or so ago, that Atlanta was moving forward with the purchase of 500 bikes that will be installed at 57 locations around the city.
“So what about Decatur?”, Peter recently asked us.
City Planning Director Amanda Thompson tells DM that Decatur is not involved in Atlanta’s bike share at this point and doesn’t have plans of participating in the next fiscal year. Says Ms. Thompson, “It is still quite expensive to operate and we would need to identify a source of funding.”
