OCTA Directors discuss bike share to connect transit hubs

Bike Sharing Program May Come to Orange County

A plan to start a new “bike sharing” program for Orange County residents and commuters was discussed at Monday’s Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) Board of Directors meeting.

The program would provide commuters the last-mile connection from train stations and major transit stops to their final destinations by allowing riders to rent bicycles from various bike stations placed near transit hubs, colleges, universities, Metrolink stations and employment centers.

The pilot program, which could roll out as early as spring 2012, is anticipated to consist of eight stations, containing a total of 80 bikes. Riders would be able to rent bicycles through an annual membership or a daily usage option.

An update on the status of the program will be presented to the OCTA Board in the coming months. To view the PowerPoint presentation received by the Board, please click here.
