Crowdfunded Bikeshare Could Be Popping Up In Kansas City

The one million dollar campaign looks to strengthen urban living and sustainability.

When compared to cities like San Francisco and Portland where people are dead-serious about sustainability and green living, Kansas City has some extremely large shoes to fill. Confident in guiding Kansas City towards a healthier and more environmentally-conscious state of mind, BikeWalkKC has launched one of America’s largest crowd-funding campaigns to extend the privileges of its bikeshare scheme to the city’s ten surrounding zones.

This bike advocacy group is asking for a total sum of $1 million to build new stations in each of the zones, and has hopes to expand their network of 90 bikes to a more sizable one. Broken up into ten separate campaigns, this project is hosted on Neighbor.ly and lets backers choose which city they would like to help fund. If you are resident of any of ten zones or just want to contribute to the future of bike share, you can visit the campaign site here.
