BikeShare Stations Get Thumbs-Up From Metro Council

posted by WJBO Newsradio -

BikeShare stations are now a go for Louisiana's capital city.

Metro Council members gave a thumbs-up yesterday in favor of a public-private partnership to supply 500 bikes to docking stations that will be located downtown, at LSU and at Southern University. A federal grant will pay for 80 percent of the costs, while City Hall will pick up the balance.

A corporate sponsor is expected to shell out about a half-million dollars a year on the program.
