Group Explores Bike Share Program in Memphis

A group has launched a project to explore the feasibility of implementing a bike share program in Memphis.

Bike share systems offer on-demand rentals of bicycle throughout cities from a network of bike stations. 

The effort for a bike share program in Memphis is called Explore Bike Share and is being led by Doug Carpenter & Associates, a public relations and marketing firm. 

“This exploration phase of a bike share program is critical to responding to a clear need for active transportation resources,” Carpenter said in a statement. “With the right kind of planning and investment now, we can understand how to make its abundant benefits available to a large part of our community, regardless of their socio-economic status.
