Carbondale and We-Cycle explore expanding bikeshare to town

The Carbondale Board of Trustees heard from We-Cycle Tuesday night in a discussion about mobility.

We-Cycle is a bikeshare program that opened in Aspen in 2013 and expanded to Basalt in 2015. The non-profit now has 43 kiosks and 190 bikes.

 

We-Cycle is considering implementing a year-round service in Carbondale, which would be the first they offer. They anticipate the year-round 24/7 cost of operation would be between $175,000 and 250,000. These numbers, however, are ballpark figures. The next step is a feasibility study.

 

We-Cycle bikes are coming back to Basalt on May 1 and May 8 to Aspen.
