Bike Share Station Permit Applications

Pronto Cycle Share, Seattle's bike share system, is authorized by the City under a program term permit. In accordance with the term permit, the non-profit operator of the system seeks Street Use permits to install and maintain bike share stations in the right-of-way (either on sidewalks or in curbspace). Each station features bicycle docks, a solar-powered kiosk for transactions, and a helmet distribution bin. Public notices of these applications are posted at proposed station sites in locations visible from the sidewalk. The system operator, Motivate International, also conducts direct outreach with properties adjacent to the proposed bike share station locations.

The following tables are updated every Monday and Thursday afternoon.
