Who runs the electric Bikes in front of the library
Thanks for asking! The bicycle kiosk at 15th and Farnam street, on the west side of the W. Dale Clark library, is one of 33 stations operated by Heartland B-Cycle centered around Midtown and Downtown. You can find complete information about the service through their website, https://heartland.bcycle.com/. Check for the detailed fee schedule there, but in general the rental cost has two parts - a membership pass to use the service ($6/day, $10/mo, etc.), then the first hour of each ride rental is free with a charge of $4 per hour after that.
The bikes available at the Heartland B-Cycle kiosks look a little different because they're accessorized for city riding, but I'm pretty sure they are not electric or power-assist bikes. You may have picked up details from a story about Quikbyke, a startup company that launched a pilot project renting electric cycles near 10th & Dodge last summer. Check their website for more information about them and their current plans.
Thanks again for asking, and thanks for using AskOPL! The library has no direct connection to either company, so you'll want to follow up with them for more information.
