Salem will take its bike-sharing program for another spin after a successful pilot season.
Salem Spins, a program that offers bicycles, free of charge, for use around the city, launched for the summer season last week.
The city’s fleet of 20 bicycles is split between two hubs, at Salem State University and downtown, near the Hawthorne Hotel. Participants are free to use a bicycle for the day after leaving a credit card with an attendant as collateral and signing a waiver to absolve the city of any responsibility.
