Summary: The Bike Share Partnership (BSP) is an ad-hoc group formed to guide the direction and development of bike sharing in the region. The BSP includes representatives from public agencies and institutions such as King County, the cities of Seattle, Redmond, and Kirkland, Sound Transit, the Puget Sound Regional Council, the University of Washington, and a number of other organizations including Seattle Children’s, Microsoft, and the Cascade Bicycle Club. The BSP has identified the following key goals for the program:
- Develop a regional bike share system that allows multiple jurisdictions to participate and provides a consistent user experience and single pricing structure.
- Provide a new mobility option for the region that extends the reach of public transit.
- Increase the opportunity for residents and visitors to take part in healthy physical activity.
- Reduce carbon emissions from the transportation sector.
