Downtown Springfield might get a new method of transportation

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A new proposed bike share in Springfield would consist of six stations sprinkled around downtown Springfield with 25 to 30 bikes

Individuals can rent out a bike from one of the stations for up to two hours with only a credit card. Then they simply return the bike at any of the stations. You can either pay for the bike every time you use it or sign up for a membership.

The bikes will be electronic bikes, which helps make pedaling easier.

A helmet is recommended, but not required.

The Springfield City Council will do a second reading on this ordinance on Monday, February 11. The Springfield Bike Share Board is pushing for the proposal.
