Orlando’s bike share program will be up and running next year — timed to coincide with the launch of Central Florida’s commuter rail service.
“That’s the goal, to get bikes on the ground before SunRail gets here,” says CycleHop Orlando program director Peter Martinez.
The first phase of the program calls for 200 bikes at 30 downtown stations, with a long term goal of 1,000 bikes.
