Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer Endorses Orlando Bike Share

  1. 1. April 17, 2014 To Whom It May Concern: Orlando is entering a whole new era of transit as our community is about to open SunRail, our region’s first commuter rail line which will begin operations on May 1. To complement SunRail and provide additional transit options for residents and visitors, we have expanded LYNX bus and LYMMO bus rapid transit service. We also recently launched a carshare program with our partner Hertz 24/7. It is our hope that we can also unveil a bikeshare program in Downtown Orlando before the end of 2014. As such, the City of Orlando has partnered with Cyclehop to implement and operate a bikeshare program. Already available in other cities throughout the world, bikeshare allows residents and visitors to rent a bicycle quickly, easily and affordably by the hour or day and return the bicycle to a number of other locations throughout Downtown Orlando. Bikeshare is a private venture being implemented without public subsidy. Cyclehop relies on sponsorships to launch, maintain and operate the program. In exchange for sponsorships, the bicycles and stations offer many opportunities to advertise your business. I encourage you to review the sponsorship package and consider becoming a sponsor of this new efficient and environmentally friendly program that will change the way residents and visitors move around Downtown Orlando. If you are interested in obtaining more information about bikeshare, please call Ian Sikonia in the City’s Transportation Planning Division at 407.246.3325. Sincerely, Buddy Dyer Mayor
