Before a bike-share trial is wheeled out next year, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) wants to find out how much it will cost, how it will be run and whether it is feasible.

The LTA issued a request for information (RFI) yesterday on government procurement website GeBIZ to seek proposals from industry players on implementing bike-sharing in Singapore.

It intends to introduce a trial scheme by the end of next year in areas with cycling path networks.

Potential locations are the city centre, Jurong Lake district, Pasir Ris, Tampines and Sembawang.
