B-Line to begin bicycle delivery Monday
As a way to combat the reduced business that the streetcar construction has brought, Tucson Velo sponsor The B Line is beginning a bicycle delivery service on Monday.
The B Line manager Christine Ziegler said she knows the construction is daunting to their customers and is keeping many of them away. Biking and walking to the restaurant is easier, but the weather can make that challenging too.
“We are going to do it in part because we know it is really hard to get here with the construction and — in part because with summertime being as torturous as it is around here we know that is going to inhibit people coming down here even more,” she said. “We want to bring The B Line to them.”
Ziegler said there are three or four employees who have volunteered to deliver the food using their own bikes, which B Line equipped with racks, but they hope to expand the service if it goes well.
“We are hoping that delivery is such a success that we will get a B Line bike or trike to continue deliveries,” she said.
Bike delivery will be available for lunch orders from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be complementary.
The delivery zone is bounded by Elm on the north, Campbell on the east, Main on the west and Broadway on the south.
