The City of Redmond is considering a fall implementation of bike share. The right-of-way permit code (RMC 12.08) would need to first be amended to require a permit for vendors to operate bike share in Redmond. This will require an ordinance to be approved by City Council. City Council agendas can be viewed here.
Once the code amendment is adopted, bike share permits can then be issued. Private companies would then be allowed to apply for a permit which includes insurance, bonding, and indemnification of the city.
