CultureMap reports that Houston B-Cycle is set to become the “largest bike share program in Texas and the southwest” with a “big boost” from the federal government. B-Cycle’s capacity will “triple in size” in the next 18 to 24 months, upping the total number of bikes to almost 800.

This massive expansion will take place in three phases, adding stations in various locations, with the second phase concentrating on “creating greater station density” in the Museum District, Midtown, Montrose and Downtown.

B-Cycle works by allowing users to rent and return bicycles from stations located across the city.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District.

The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org.
