Scottsdale Letting Bike-Share Companies Set Up Shop In City

When we think of bike-share in the Valley so far, it’s always been about GR:D system. Those are the bright green bikes with the smiley face on the basket that calls itself the “official bike-share” of Phoenix, Tempe and Mesa.

Joining us now is Susan Conklu, a transportation planner with the city of Scottsdale.
