City of Canandaigua considers new bike-sharing program

The City of Canandaigua and local business leaders are considering a new bike-sharing program to provide transportation to residents and tourists.

HOPR, a self-described “micro-mobility company,” would implement the program on a two-year basis, according to Daily Messenger.

The idea for the program started with Canandaigua’s transportation/trolley committee under Mayor Bob Palumbo. Local businesses hope the bike-sharing program could bring Finger Lakes Community College (FLCC) students to downtown restaurants and shops.

“It’s an incredible opportunity,” said Denise Chaapel, manager of the downtown Canandaigua Business Improvement District.

The Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority (RTS) would covers program costs for two years via grand funding. Details of the program, including where bike-sharing stations would be located, are still in the works.
