Town of Vail’s Environmental Sustainability Team is accepting proposals for a neighborhood-based electric assist bike share pilot program to be implemented during the summer. The goal of the pilot program is to determine community interest, level of participation and feasibility of implementing a full-scale electric bike share program in Vail as a micro-mobility option for residents and employees that will reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles traveling in town during non-snow months.
Town of Vail believes that an electric bike share program can offer solutions for commuting residents and employees to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce vehicle miles traveled through Vail and further Vail and Eagle County’s climate related mobility goals. If the pilot program is successful in Vail, it will serve as a model for effective micro-mobility solutions throughout Eagle County with potential to develop a full-scale electric bike share program within the Town of Vail with the potential to expand a network throughout the county.
Interested parties must submit a proposal by March 27. Visit www.vailgov.com/notices to view the original request for proposal that outlines the requirements for submittal and budget guidelines.
Contact Beth Markham, Environmental Sustainability Coordinator with any questions before March 16 at email@example.com or 970-479-2333.
