We-Cycle’s bike share system is already in Aspen and Basalt.  Now, it wants to expand to Carbondale. At a work session last week, the town took a step toward making that happen.  


Carbondale granted We-Cycle’s request to include a $30,000 placeholder in their 2020 draft budget.  We-Cycle asked for the placeholder to help it raise the rest of the money needed to place its bikes throughout the town. 


Carbondale trustee Erica Sparhawk says the town agreed to include We-Cycle in the draft budget because it meets the town’s goal to get people out of their cars. 

Next, We-Cycle will put out a community survey to gauge public interest. The town will look at the results before finalizing its budget in December.
