Nine self-service bike stations closed in Metro Parks
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – Nine e-bike charging stations were moved at the request of Metro Parks last week, according to Walk Bike Nashville.
Nashville BCycle announced that it will temporarily close nine of its bike-share stations so they can be moved and opened in early October. Locations for each station include Shelby Bottoms Nature Center, Percy Priest Dam Trailhead, Parthenon, Centennial Park, and 5th Ave. South and Demonbreun, Ted Rhodes Golf Course, McCabe Community Center and Morgan Park.
Walk Bike Nashville said after speaking to Diana Alarcon, director of the Nashville Department of Transportation, six of the nine stations will be moved back to their original locations in Metro Parks by installing concrete slabs in the public right-of-way. However, three stations still need a new placebike share.
