CLEVELAND (AP) — The city of Cleveland is beginning a detailed study this month on a proposal to make bicycle rentals available on demand.

The city has hired a consultant to lead the six-month study on ways to implement an automated bike-sharing program for short trips, fitness and exercise.

Cleveland’s chief of sustainability, Jenita McGowan, says the goal is to determine if and how bike sharing can benefit residents and visitors.

Mayor Frank Jackson has a goal of making Cleveland a hub of sustainable, eco-friendly living.

Last year Cleveland’s public transit agency carried a record 42,000 bicycles on buses and commuter trains.
