Unlike other bike share systems in other cities that have public investment Alta must turn to private investors to help grow our system here. Alta is financially sound and is more committed than ever to making bike share a daily part of American life across the country.
Second, our General Manager will be departing in the coming weeks. He saw us through the launch of the largest bike share system in North America, including deployment of 332 stations and 6,000 bikes in a record short time frame. He will be moving on to a company that manages complex, large scale construction projects. We wish him the best in his new endeavors and welcome Eddie Inlow, former General Manager of Divvy Bikes in Chicago and current COO of Alta Bicycle Share, who will oversee general operations as we conduct a national search.
