If you live in Mid-City, City Park Triangle, Tulane-Canal, or Faubourg St. John, the Mid-City Neighborhood Organization wants you. Or your opinion, for that matter.

MCNO is surveying residents before Monday’s bike share workshop hosted by the city. The workshop, which is meant to gather public input on the best locations for the 70 bicycle stations throughout the city, starts at 6:30 p.m. at First Grace United Methodist Church, 3401 Canal St.

The program launches this fall and will include 700 bikes.

MCNO’s online survey centers around where residents think bike share locations would best fit into Mid-City, and whether people want them in their neighborhoods. According to the feasibility study – which officials said is a “guideline” for future stations – only half of Mid-City will have access to those stations during roll out, MCNO officials said.

“With bike paths on the Greenway and the Parkway, bike lanes on Orleans, Banks, and soon to come on Tulane Ave, this lack of bike share stands seems a bit odd,” the survey said.
