As Explore Bike Share (EBS), the bike share system bringing 600 bikes to the city in the spring, is getting off of the ground, its board of directors are looking for an executive director to run the program.

The director will be responsible for strategic and operational responsibilities of planning, implementing, and operating the new network of bikes in the city.

Some of the duties include, overseeing daily operations, fund development, community engagement, managing finances, marketing, and business planning.

The aim of EBS is to provide equitable access to transit throughout Memphis' central loop. It's set to launch in spring 2018 with approximately 60 bike stations in downtown, Midtown, South Memphis, Orange Mound, and Binghamton.

The board says the executive director will "lead the charge" toward making Memphis' public spaces more accessible to a larger number of people in the city.

Applications will be accepted through Oct. 13. Interested in applying, go here.
