Bike-share could return to Rochester — and launch in the suburbs or local college campuses — as early as next month.

The city’s program would roll out on a limited basis alongside a wider network aligned with the Regional Transit Service. The debut of e-scooters also is in the offing.

Rochester is, in essence, piggybacking on three-year deal that Florida-based CycleHop, doing business as HOPR, made with the Rochester-Genesee Regional Transportation Authority earlier this year for a pedal and electric bike-share program.

Both efforts are still works in progress.

In the city, the program start will be limited, seen more as a trial run in preparation for a full launch in the spring, said Alex Yudelson, chief of staff to Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren.
