Following the successful first season of ValleyBike in 2018, local officials have been invited to speak with the Connecting Point about the progress of the program thus far. The discussion covered topics such as bike share user demographics, the regional aspect of the system, future pricing developments, and system growth.
Richard Harris, the Director of Planning and Conservation in South Hadley, noted that ValleyBike offers an accessible means of bicycle transportation that helps to increase the viability of cycling as a transportation method for the region. Marcus Marrero, the Director of Planning and Economic Development in Holyoke, highlighted the fact that the system helps people reach points of interest throughout the region, and that almost 100,000 miles had already been traveled using ValleyBike.
Bewegen Technologies looks forward to the promising future of the ValleyBike system in 2019.
