Now you see it, now you don't: Last week, Chicago's controversial new bike share contract, subject of the current Culture column
, popped up on the city's website list of contracts awarded. As noted in an update to the column, the website made it clear that the five-year contract, approved by the City Council in April, had been awarded to Alta Bicycle Share, Inc., May 7 for a total of $65 million.
But if you looked for that information today, you'd be out of luck. Shortly after our update, it mysteriously disappeared.
Off for a ride, perhaps?
So far, no response by the city to inquiries about what happened.
