“Mayor Karl Dean, Metro Health Director Bill Paul and Tom Turner, CEO and president of the Nashville Downtown Partnership, demonstrated the program by checking out B-cycle bikes from an automated kiosk at the city’s Public Square, then rode to the Nashville Farmer’s Market and return the bikes to a kiosk there.
“Nashville B-cycle is one more way that we can make Nashville a more bike-friendly city and inspire people to embrace healthy, active living,” Dean said. “The strategically located kiosks will make getting around our urban core even easier and more convenient for workers, residents and visitors.”
During the presentation in September with the Mayor of San Diego, the Mayor asked the participants to fill out a survey on the three public bike share solutions present, SandVaults bike share equipment and Deco’s / Rugged bike share cycle were there and up for the challenge.
Well, I guess the results speak for itself! Congratulations to Deco Bike and to the City of San Diego.
