Memphis Could be Next City to Roll Out a Bike Sharing Program

Doug Carpenter & Associates is heading up Explore Bike Share, a committee designed to investigate the feasibility of an on-demand bike rental program. Some of Doug Carpenter’s key concerns are finding out where the rental stations should be placed, how many bikes fit Memphis’ need, and how the project could be funded.

“Many Memphians are in need of better transit options—but are seeing fewer of them. A network of safe, affordable, and accessible bicycles may be able to fill some of these gaps, unlocking new opportunities in neighborhoods across the city,” the group writes on the Explore Bike Share website.
