MorningFile: Hamilton Bike Share Program

MorningFile host, Emma McCarty interviewed Ward 3 City Councillor Nrinder Nann regarding the city’s bike share program. Earlier in the year, Uber announced it would no longer continue the popular bike share program Sobi, after June 1 in Hamilton. Following this announcement several negotiations took place between city council members and it did not look like a bike share program would continue in the city. However, the Hamilton community recognized the need for bike access and the not-for profit, Hamilton Bike Share stepped up. Hamilton Bike Share will continue the program until February 2021, when the city council will revisit the plan.

Watch the full interview to learn about the hardships Councillor Nann faced when advocating for a bike share program as well as where she sees the future of bike share heading.
