        Originally set to begin this year, the launch of a bicycle sharing program in western Massachusetts has been pushed back to 2018. 

       Just last week, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation issued a contract for $1.3 million in federal funds to pay for the bikes and stations for ValleyBike Share. 

       WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Wayne Feiden, the city of Northampton’s Director of Planning and Sustainability.
