New Orleans looks into 'bike-sharing' system
NEW ORLEANS- New Orleans officials are seeking proposals from businesses interested in operating a bike-sharing system in the city.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu's office announced the request for proposals in a Tuesday news release.
The system envisioned by city leaders would offer low-cost access to a fleet of bikes at fixed stations at different points in the city. Landrieu's office says the project will be privately funded, with no tax dollars used.
The city says three feasibility studies conducted in recent years indicate New Orleans is well suited for a bike-sharing system, based on the success of such systems in other cities.
