River Action consideres bike share program

The Quad Cities may have another mode of public transportation in the near future. River Action is considering creating a bike share program for the area.

Program Director Tim Chambers says there isn't an official plan for a bike share program yet, but it could link with other public transportation systems in the Quad Cities.
But Chambers says bike sharing could also have some downsides.

Costs money, doesn't make money, how funding works.

River Action is working with other local organizations to find out if a bike share program like the ones in Chicago, Des Moines, and Omaha will work here.

The survey results and plan are expected to be complete in about four months.
