The future of shared bicycles and scooters was the topic of discussion at a summit meeting Thursday in Santa Barbara.

Participants included a group of transportation experts and those with an interest in the popular new way to get around.

Bicycle advocates are hoping to bring a bike share network to the Santa Barbara area.

The Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition envisions a fleet of self-service bikes available 24 hours a day in locations all around the Santa Barbara area. While this is only an idea, it’s a concept advocates are hoping to implement.

Eve Sanford with the Coalition says a bike share feasibility study was conducted and found that such a system could thrive in the region.
