Beverly Hills Pilot Bike Share Program to Begin Feb 22, 2016
CycleHop and Social Bicycles to launch Beverly Hills Pilot Bike Share Test Period Feb. 22. Volunteers are welcome and will be able to ride the bicycles for free and provide feedback on their experience through April 22, 2016. During the test period, each volunteer may ride the Beverly Hills bikes for up to 60 minutes daily. Bike-share docking stations will be located at City Hall near the northeast entrance on N. Crescent Drive at S. Santa Monica Boulevard and adjacent to the Wells Fargo bank located on the southwest corner of North Camden Drive and South Santa Monica Boulevard. The Beverly Hills pilot bike share program is scheduled to roll out in April 2016 to celebrate Earth Month. At that time, the full system will include 50 smart bikes with onboard technology and 100 bike docking racks in 10 locations throughout the City. Riders will be able to use the ’Social Bicycles’ smart phone app (download from app store) or www.BeverlyHillsBikeShare.com website to sign-up, find available bikes and docking stations, and reserve bikes. Once the program is launched, the bikes can be returned to a Beverly Hills Bike Share station for free or at any public bike rack for a small fee. The Beverly Hills Bike Share program will be compatible with the bike share system in the City of Santa Monica and future adjacent jurisdictions. For more information or to volunteer for the test phase, please submit contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Transportation Planning at (310) 285-1161.
