Public-shared bikes are coming to Seattle.
The city is making it easy for you to take your bike and get to work.
The Seattle Public Utilities Commission announced today that its Public Bike Share program is to begin in the city by the end of this year.
The program will be operated by the Seattle Public Works Department, the city’s transportation agency.
Public bikes will be distributed to low-income residents in the neighborhoods where the program will initially be offered.
Those with an average income of less than $40,000 per year will get their first two units at no charge.
The remaining units will cost $2 per hour, which is $1.50 per hour more than a traditional bike share.
The fee for a first-time bike rider will be $3.
Public bikes will begin in August, and will be available to users at no cost.
This is a pilot program, meaning the city will pay for the first two bikes to be distributed.
But public bike share programs can be funded through other means, and the program is set to pay for itself.
Public bike share is a program that is popular with the city and has been embraced by some businesses, including restaurants, shops and other businesses.
The Seattle Public Utility Commission announced in December that the program would begin in 2018.
In October, the Seattle Department of Transportation also began testing public bike shares in the area around University District.
Public bike shares will be offered at several locations throughout the city, including King County Metro Transit buses, King County Transit buses and a few Seattle-area hotels and motels.
The stations are located near schools, parks, businesses, recreation facilities, and other locations.
“The public bike sharing program in Seattle is an exciting, innovative and innovative way to support our city’s bike-share program,” Mayor Ed Murray said in a press release.
“This is an incredibly popular program, and we are excited to bring it to Seattle, where we know our residents are passionate about their daily commute.”
The program will operate in four phases: The first phase will be rolled out in phases two through four.
The second phase will open in phases five through eight, with the final phase starting in phases nine through 12.
Phase one will start in July.
The City Council will decide when to implement the program and when to stop providing public bike-sharing.
