City of Miami Approves Contract for DecoBike Expansion

DecoBike’s expansion of its bikeshare operations into the city of Miami was approved on Thursday January 24th with a unanimous vote by the city commission. Plans include 50 new station locations and 500 bikes to be located in Miami’s downtown, Coconut Grove, Omni, Little Havana, Midtown, Design District and the Brickell Financial District. Other potential station locations include the Health District to serve Jackson Memorial Hospital and the University of Miami’s healthcare facilities.  The new network will link with DecoBike’s well-known Miami Beach bike sharing program to form one of the largest programs in the US with 150+ station locations and more than 1,500 bikes.  The expected launch date is in late 2013.
