The launch of Baltimore's bike-sharing program will be delayed until next summer after the hardware and equipment vendor selected by the city filed for bankruptcy, officials said Wednesday.
The city is expected to seek new vendors through a bid process as early as June, said Kathy Dominick, a spokeswoman for the Department of Transportation. The city is rewriting its request for proposal, or RFP.
The city's program, to be called Charm City Bikeshare, was expected to open this spring with more than 250 bicycles available for short-term rentals at 25 stations. The program would be similar to bike-sharing in other cities, including Washington and London.
