Well, just got a notice from JTA that the RFP for a Bike Share system in Jax has been cancelled.  I guess free was still to expensive for them.

I was informed it was put on hold. Not cancelled. Why? I'm not sure but it appears the private sector is confident bike share can work here.

According to the Business Journal,
Quote
On Feb. 12, JTA notified the five companies that responded to a request for proposals that it had created a short list of three companies and intended "to negotiate with the number one ranked firm," which is VeoRide.

The selection will be presented to JTA's board at its Feb. 21 meeting. The authority is looking for a five-year contract, which the board would also have to approve.

Well see, but my expectations are pretty low.
