Topeka, KS Metro could soon shut down its bike share program

After crunching the numbers, Topeka Metro said it came down to bikes or buses.

Barring outside intervention, the bike share program will be eliminated Dec. 1.”At the end of the day, if we’re not able to provide basic transportation for such as to get people to work and medical appointments through our buses, it’s hard for us to justify continuing to run the bike share,” Jim Ogle, board chair for Topeka Metro, said.
