Aspen delays bike-sharing program
ASPEN — Aspen is delaying the rollout of its bike-sharing program because of red tape.
WE-Cycle’s Mirte Mallory is blaming the federal government for delays selecting a vendor.
According to the Aspen Times, a slimmed down program will include eight to 10 stations to start, 100 bicycles and a computer system to track the bikes.
Users will be able to check out bikes to get around town, taking them from one station to another and paying a fee for a trip of more than 30 minutes.
Denver and Boulder already offer similar programs
