RFP for Bike Share Program

bike share program bikes

The City of Wilmington, NC is soliciting proposals from qualified bike share firms for a turn-key, public bicycle sharing program to be operated within the Wilmington Metropolitan Urban Area Planning Organization (WMPO).

The region is growing rapidly led by significant multi-family and mixed use developments. The WMPO’s bicycle culture has changed dramatically over the last decade. Its population is also growing dramatically. Public officials predict the population in Wilmington and New Hanover County will increase by 57% between 2010 and 2040. Therefore, they are seeking a bicycle sharing program to improve transportation and recreation options for current and future residents, and visitors of the community.

The WMPO is governed by a 13-member Board which has approved the solicitation of proposals for the potential bike share program. Each member jurisdiction of the WMPO will be responsible for contracting directly with the selected firm.
