If you keep watching the price of gas and are concerned about how you might get to work…this is an exciting program that has continued to grow – and from a recent report – will expand to include more BIKE SHARE opportunities. (If you have never experienced our bath paths – you should check them out!!)
Across the U.S., more than 25 cities of various sizes have launched bike share transportation systems. Dayton’s bike share program will feature 22 strategically located stations, all within an approximate two mile radius of downtown Dayton. Each station will contain six to 10 bikes, totaling more than 200 bikes in the system. Customers — who range from one-day users to annual subscribers — unlock the bikes and may ride to any other station or back to the original location at the end of their trip.
Bike sharing offers several economic, livability, transportation, environmental and health benefits to the businesses, employees and residents in downtown Dayton and surrounding neighborhoods. Bike share programs add to urban vibrancy, are highly desired by young professionals, and greatly improve the connectivity of existing public transit by completing the “last mile” between a transit stop and a user’s final destination.
Now, make a plan to check out the bike paths and keep on PEDDLING!
