DENVER (CBS4) – Drivers already share the street with cyclists, and now they’ll share it with B-cycle stations as well.
Denver Mayor Michael Hancock helped celebrate the opening of the first on-street B-cycle station on Tuesday.
The city says moving the stations off the sidewalks is part of an ongoing push for bicycles and vehicles to safely share transportation infrastructure.
“This station is yet another step for the city to say, ‘We are open for business, we are welcoming everyone to our city, and we want to tap your innovative and your entrepreneurial spirit — and we want you to move around our city in a very sustainable manner,’ ” Hancock said.
The first on-street station is in front of the Galvanize Building at 11th and Delaware. It’s Denver’s 83rd B-cycle station.
