The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) is planning a regional program with involvement from 16 small towns and cities around Boston to introduce bike-share programs to smaller communities.
Because of the limited funds of the cities, the program is mainly looking at venture-funded companies as those can offer private systems with little upfront cost and no taxpayer funds. The MAPC is beginning to solicit proposals from bike-share companies for non-city-based bike-share in November.
The communities interested are Arlington, Bedford, Belmont, Chelsea, Concord, Everett, Lexington, Malden, Medford, Milton, Newton, Revere, Winthrop, Quincy, Waltham and Watertown.
