Updated June 19 2013 In mid-April of this year, the U.S. Department of Labor requestedinformation from Capital Bikeshare operator Alta Bicycle Share aboutcompliance with federal wage guidelines in our contract with the DistrictDepartment of Transportation. Since that time, we have been workingdiligently to provide the department with the information they haverequested. This process began well before any mention of the request washighlighted by the media or any other organization, and Alta is committed toensuring that we are in complete compliance with the wage and benefitcomponents of all our contracts. Accordingly, Alta has undertaken anexhaustive review of the four Capital Bikeshare-related contracts in the DCarea, as well as all other contracts for systems we operate, to furtherensure we are treating our employees with the respect they deserve. As mostof our jobs in this cutting edge industry are not currently listed in theprevailing wage guidelines, we have been very thoroughly working todetermine the best classification for our jobs.Capital Bikeshare was Alta’s first system in the US, and we are very proudof its success. Since we started in September of 2010, Capital Bikeshare’smore than 20,000 annual and monthly members, plus hundreds of thousands forshort term users, have logged over 4 million bike trips in the region. Altastrongly believes in the power of bicycling to transform cities into morelivable spaces. We also strongly believe that success of our company, andof bike share as a concept in the US, has been due in large part to thepeople we have tasked with making the system work. From rebalancers andbike mechanics, to our station technicians and support staff, we value thehard work of each and every employee and the contribution they have made toour successes. A bike share system is nothing without the staff to make itwork.This has been a time consuming process, and one that necessarily has to bedone under the oversight of the Department of Labor. We intend to resolveas soon as possible, but the timeline will depend on the Department ofLabor.We ask for your patience and hope you continue to enjoy Capital Bikeshare.
