On March 19, 2015 the Oregon Transportation Commission approved the City of Eugene's grant request of $909,066 to create a bike share system in Eugene. An additional $193,000 was transferred from the University of Oregon (Associated Students of the University of Oregon) to the city to ensure provision of bike share stations on the UO campus. Operations are primarily funded through a combination of user fees and sponsorship contracts. The City of Eugene and partner agencies Lane Transit District and University of Oregon, contracted Social Bikes to deliver bike share equipment and operations for Eugene Bike Share. The system launched on April 19, 2018.
Construction of traffic calming speed cushions was completed in April of 2015. Neighbors agreed to go forward with construction of the traffic calming devices following two community meetings on December 18, 2014 and January 22, 2015 at the Willakenzie Grange Hall. The traffic calming installation responds to neighborhood concern about speed traffic and the safety of children traveling to Willakenzie Park.
