Winter 2012: Community Planning Workshops

Community Workshop season is upon us! Add your community board workshop to your calendar and come out to support station locations that work for you.

During the workshop, community members will participate in small group conversations led by DOT moderators to discuss how they might use Bike Share, types of locations that work best, and features that make Bike Share easy for daily life. The workshop concludes with a more precise look at where attendees would like to see Bike Share stations in the community.

The workshops run on a “drop-in” format; the whole session takes about an hour and new groups will be starting throughout the workshop’s scheduled time frame. Check our timeline to see details for upcoming workshops in your neighborhood. Bike share thrives when the station locations work for the community so we’re asking for your help!
