    bid

    hi

    The use of lifts in New York has been reduced in city administration buildings in a bid to conserve energy and major private companies have also announced conservation measures.


    does "in a bid" in the text above have the same meaning with "in an offer"

    thx in advance!

    Re: bid

    In this sentence it means in an effort or in an attempt.
