New Orleans, Social Bicycles extends bike share station voting until June 25

There is still time to cast your voice

Earlier this month, the Office of the Mayor and Social Bicycles—the company responsible for setting-up and maintaining the bike share program coming this fall—created a online poll to gauge user interest on potential bike stations. So far, the city listed over 240 potential locations. Voting has been extended until Sunday, June 25.

Visit the City of New Orleans’s polling site to cast a suggestion in favor or against a particular bike location.

So far, proposed locations are clustered in the Mid-City, Bayou St. John, Treme, 7th Ward, Lower Garden District, Warehouse District, and Central Business District neighborhoods.

After evaluating user comments, Social Bicycles will release a draft version of a station location map in July. When the company publishes that map, locals will be able to comment on the proposed location of 70 stations. Social Bicycles will begin the installation of the bike stations in October.

This past Spring, Social Bicycles held six work shops to help draft potential bike station locations. The workshops had over 100 attendees in total. To view presentations and proposals presented at the workshop, visit the City off New Orleans’s official website.
