There will be an open house to review and discuss components of the bike share feasibility study on Wednesday, Feb. 12, at 6 p.m., at the Lane Community College Downtown Campus (101 West 10th Avenue) in Room 112. Bike share is a transportation solution that offers bicycles to system subscribers for short trips. Recently, new bike share systems such as Citi Bike in New York City and other successful systems such as Capital Bike Share in Washington, D.C., have been making headlines and generating enthusiasm for bike share in smaller communities throughout the United States.
The City of Eugene and Lane Transit District have contracted with Toole Design Group to prepare a feasibility study for developing a bike share system in Eugene. The open house will provide an opportunity to engage in a conversation about bike share with national experts and increase understanding of bike share and its potential in the Eugene area.

People who cannot attend the meeting are asked to consider taking a short survey or suggest locations for bike share stations. For additional information, contact Reed Dunbar, associate transportation planner, at 541-682-5727.
