Bicycle demo

Free demonstrations set for Bike Chattanooga Bicycle Transit System

Representatives of Alta Bicycle Share and Outdoor Chattanooga will offer free demonstrations of the upcoming Bike Chattanooga Bicycle Transit System at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday at the Chattanooga Choo Choo, 1400 Market St.

Scheduled to launch this spring, the Bicycle Transit System is intended to provide a convenient and healthy way for residents and visitors to travel around downtown.

Managed by Alta Bicycle Share, the membership-driven system will feature 30 stations and 300 bicycles, available to members 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Regular membership will cost $75 per year or $6 for 24 hours. Those who sign up before spring will pay an introductory yearly rate of $60.

Those attending Saturday's demonstrations will learn how the system works, how to register and check out bicycles, membership options and bicycle safety.

Bike Chattanooga representatives are available to give demonstrations to any group or organization that has an interest in using the bike share. To schedule a demo, call Jeremy Pomp, Bike Chattanooga general manager, at 521-1642.

TFP: Mark the date and write down on your calender 18 months from now to revisit and write a piece on how this was over promised and over sold and thus never had any chance of succeeding and how the $2m Fed grant given to a private company was an entire waste. Each bike costs over $6000.

TFP: What will this cost the City? Is this company paying for the public works department or city engineering staff to work on the placement of these bikes on city property?

Jeremy Pomp, general manager of Bike Chattanooga... is he an employee of the City of Chattanooga? is not even a city owned website.
