Residents and visitors of the Memorial Management District have a new, convenient and healthy transportation option. Houston Bike Share has installed the first of 13 stations in the District. The official ribbon-cutting for the new Pearl CityCentre Station will be Tuesday, August 30, at 12pm in front of the Pearl Residences CityCentre, 10401 Town and Country Way.
Houston Bike Share’s Pearl CityCentre Station is funded by the Memorial Management District. The Pearl Station is the first step towards a larger expansion within the District over the coming years. Bike sharing will serve to connect residents and visitors to its thriving business and entertainment venues in CityCentre.
Pat Walters, Executive Director, states, “The Memorial Management District is so pleased to work with Bike Share and businesses in our District to install up to 13 bike stations within our boundaries in the next 4 years. The District is committed to encourage biking opportunities, and we appreciate Pearl CityCentre allowing us to install the District’s first funded bike station.
The new station will mark Houston Bike Share’s 33rd station and will include 11 docks and 7 bikes. Aside from the new station, HBS will begin the first phase of its expansion project with 25 stations coming by the end of 2016.
“Thanks to the District’s leadership, Houstonians who live, work, and play in CityCentre will have access to a first class bike share program. Houston Bike Share is enthusiastic about our partnership with the Memorial Management District and look forward to working with them going forward to increase B-Cycle’s presence in the District”
