Bike Sharing Coming to the Suburbs!
We are excited to report Bike Share is coming to Rancho Cordova and Folsom. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the ever amazing Rebecca Garrison (past Executive Director of the 50 Corridor TMA), bike share in the suburbs is becoming a reality.
Just this week, the Cities of Rancho Cordova and Folsom are working with SACOG (Sacramento Area Council of Governments) to finalize agreements and working relationships to bring a fleet of bike share bikes to the suburbs.
Many of you have probably seen the JUMP bikes in the City of Sacramento downtown and midtown areas. This is the first time bike share will be available in any suburb of Sacramento.
Watch for updates as we work with the cities to develop "first-mile, last-mile" solutions with Bike Share.
