So let's see if we can find out if they got the money. That will tell us if these additional stations are actually funded, or merely planned.

Looking...

Update #1: Here is the list of grant awards for that program. $18 million for bikesharing *is* on the list. However, it is a 5 year list, meaning $18 million is the total allocated over a 5 year period. It doesn't say whether all the money is up front, or spread out over several years. I will keep looking.

Update #2: The $18 million is over three years. No word on how much of it is in the first year. I'm tired of looking and am going to stop.
