Aloha-Reedville Bike Parking ProjectFebruary 19th, 2016
Increased bike parking is on the way
WTA has begun work on the Aloha-Reedville Bike Parking Implementation Project, funded largely by Metro’s Regional Travel Options grant program. The Aloha-Reedville Bike Parking Implementation Project will increase the amount of quality bike parking in commercial areas in Aloha-Reedville.
What: The Aloha-Reedville Bike Parking Implementation Project will increase the amount of quality bike parking in commercial areas in Aloha-Reedville. The project intends to also:
- Increase awareness among business owners of the benefits of bike parking
- Increase the number of people using bikes to get to destinations
Who: Westside Transportation Alliance (WTA) will engage with residents, business owners, property owners and the Aloha-Reedville Community to carry out this project.
Why: The project builds off Washington County’s Aloha-Reedville Study and Livable Community Plan where the community expressed their desire for improved bike parking facilities. WTA recently produced a suburban bike parking guide which also helps to inform and encourage bike parking in Washington County.
How: WTA is working with Washington County and other community partners. The project is funded in part by Metro Regional Travel Options grant.
Where do you want to see new bike parking located?
We gathered input from the community on desired locations for bike parking and are following up with those businesses and property owners now. Thanks to those who provided feedback through an online tool and in person at meetings including the Aloha Reedville Community Council, the Aloha Business Association and CPO 6.
We are working to install the bike parking by spring 2017.
