How Egg Harbor's bike program could help Green Bay

Green Bay's bike sharing program is ending after eight months of operations.  Egg Harbor officials, however, believe a similar program can still be viable under the right conditions.  Egg Harbor's "Eggy Bike" program allows anyone the free use of village-owned bikes. Borrowers have been good about returning them.  Village Administrator Ryan Heis says such a system might not work in a larger community such as Green Bay, which would need GPS devices to keep track of the bikes.  Heise believes bike-sharing in medium-size communities could offer a unique opportunity for potential providers.

 

Green Bay's bike-sharing program ended when the operator, Lime Bike of San Francisco, opted to pull out of smaller and medium-sized communities to focus on scooter and bike rental in larger cities.
