Bike Share Program Survey

The Towns of Acton and Maynard are exploring the potential for a regional “bike share” program. Bike share programs allow users to rent bikes as needed, to and from designated stations.  The program would be user-fee supported and would involve use of a private company to maintain and operate stations and bikes.

In order to gauge interest, demand and feasibility,  we are requesting you take our survey located at: .  The survey should take no more than five minutes. The survey closes March 20th.

Please note:  If you have employees or persons you think may be interested, is it requested you pass along the address of this page or the survey.  This information is critical for the program.  These responses will help establish a baseline for further efforts to develop this program.
