The communities of Amherst, Holyoke, Northampton, South Hadley and Springfield, the University of Massachusetts, and the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission have been working for nearly two years to bring the region's first bike share program here.
Next week our official Request for Proposal is being released - soliciting detailed bids from private bike share companies who will ultimately manage the day-to-day operations of ValleyBike.
In case you missed it, the Springfield Republican also recently published an update to this work that you can read by clicking here.
We will continue to keep you updated as we make progress on sponsorships, station locations, and vendor selection, among other important work left to be done before next spring's launch.
In the meantime, please check in from time to time on our website, ValleyBike.org, or contact Pat Beaudry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
