A bike share program could soon be coming to the suburbs.

One metro city is looking at renting bicycles - just like they do in downtown Kansas City – and there are several reasons why they believe it would work.

The Bike Share program in Kansas City has proven to be very popular. Since it began five years ago, the city has expanded stations into North Kansas City, Longview Lake, the Plaza and 18th and Vine. Now the city of Olathe wants to offer something similar.

They have many miles of bike lanes painted onto Olathe streets, but nowhere can you go to rent a bike. You ride your own bike or you don’t ride at all.

Seeing the success of Kansas City’s 24/7 bike share program, Olathe officials are doing a feasibility study to see if it might work there.
