We are continuing to work with our neighbouring municipalities to bring an electric-assist bike sharing to the North Shore.
The bike share program’s launch will be delayed while the municipalities work to deliver a high-quality system that serves the needs of our communities.
What is it?
A typical bike share system consists of a fleet of publically available bicycles, any of which you can rent for a short period of time. You pick up a bike at one location and drop it off at any other designated location, making it easy to get around town without the need for a car, or even owning your own bike.
Bike share systems have already been successfully implemented in the City of Vancouver, Kelowna, Victoria, Richmond, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and at the University of British Columbia.
The new North Shore system goes one step further, by being the first in the province to provide e-bikes rather than regular bikes.
An e-bike has an integrated electric motor that adds power to your pedalling, so tackling the hilly North Shore terrain will be easier than ever for adults of all ages and abilities.
Stay tuned! We’ll share more details with you as soon as they’re available.
