Adaptive Bikeshare Pilot Project, Portland, Oregon and Detroit, Michigan, 2017
5 minutes Date Enacted: Jun 1, 2017 Dates given are approximate.
The Adaptive Bike Share Pilot link below discusses the details of the two-city project.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has launched a pilot project to integrate adaptive bicycling options throughout the city’s various bike rental operators, including the BIKETOWN bike share network. Under this project, PBOT would purchase the adaptive bicycles and work with the rental operators to integrate them into the existing service. PBOT is currently considering both hand bicycles and three wheeled bicycles.
In Detroit, the MoGo bikesharing program—with support from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Design & Access Fund at the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan and the Dick Allen Lansing to MACinaw Fund—purchased 13 bikes that will be branded and rented from a central location.
