NYC to Announce Bike-Share Operator This Afternoon

The wait is over -- the city has selected an operator to run what is expected to be the nation's most robust bike-share system. This just in from NYC DOT:

NYC DOT COMMISSIONER SADIK-KHAN AND DEPUTY MAYOR WOLFSON JOIN ELECTED OFFICIALS AND CIVIC LEADERS TO ANNOUNCE SELECTION OF BIKE SHARE OPERATOR

Event:             NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, Deputy Mayor Howard Wolfson will join other officials and civic leaders to announce the vendor selected to operate New York City’s bike share program.

Date:              Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Time:              12:30 p.m.

Location:        Flatiron Pedestrian Plaza, Broadway between 22nd and 23rd streets, Manhattan

Visuals:           Bike share station and bikes, which reporters will have the opportunity to try out after the press conference.

The city had previously narrowed down the selection to two teams: one led by B-Cycle, which runs Denver's bike-share system, and one featuring Alta Planning and the Public Bike System Company, which, combined, have experience supplying and operating bike-share systems in London, Washington, Boston, Minneapolis, and Montreal. We'll have detailed coverage for you throughout the day.
