Chicago Bike Sharing Plan Advances

The plan for a massively-expanded city bicycle sharing program, set to launch this fall, took another step toward fruition Friday, thanks to the stamp of approval from a City Council committee.
Chicago's Pedestrian and Traffic Safety Committee approved an ordinance allowing the city to contract with the Portland, Ore.-based Alta Bicycle Share, Inc., for the $19.5 million program, which would provide 3,000 bikes at 300 solar-powered sharing kiosks citywide yet this year, followed by another 1,000 bikes and 100 kiosks in 2013, the Grid Chicago blog reports.  Huffington Post
