New Orleans' bike share program officially will begin in October with Social Bicycles Inc., and the city now is asking residents to vote on where they'd like to see the first round of bike stations.

Phase I of the program will involve installing 70 bike share stations on the East Bank of New Orleans, in a number of neighborhoods concentrated around downtown, Faubourg Marigny/Bywater, the Garden District and Mid-City (see map). Each bike share station, the city says, is 6 feet wide and between 20 to 50 feet long (the size of one to three parking spaces).

The city requires a Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus account to log in and vote. Balloting ends June 18.
