Capitol Hill bike share in Seattle will have helmet dispensers

People point to hills and weather as the biggest challenges facing bike share in Seattle. Wrong, it’s this:

In order for Pronto to operate in compliance with helmet laws, each station will also have a “helmet dispensing” device and a return bin. Helmets will be available to rent for $2, will be sanitized after each use, and cycled out after a certain number of uses. Expect to see more people walking around with their own bike helmets to beat the $2 fee.

You no longer have to bike all the way to Fremont to get counted. The city — with support from the Rails to Trails Conservancy and the Mark and Susan Torrance Foundation — has installed seven new real-time bike counters around the city. This brings the city’s total to nine.

Burke Gilman project delayed

This ruling makes the planned and funded 2012 construction unlikely but the proponents of the trail are convinced that the City will again be able to show that the trail extension will not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment, as was determined in last year’s SDOT review.

Do it right with Portland Cement Concrete, not that Seattle asphalt cement concrete.
