   After a successful "First Look" event Wednesday (April 15) at the Boise Grove Plaza, the focus of the Boise GreenBike program turns to completing the installation of 15 bike stations in and around the downtown area and at Boise State University.
   If all goes well, the stations will be up and running before the end of April.
    More than 75 people attended the "First Look" event, which provided the opportunity for the public to see a station and learn more about how it will operate. Dave Fotsch, Director of Boise GreenBike, talked about the long process to make the program a reality. He also thanked the program's numerous sponsors, including SelectHealth and St. Luke's Health Care System.
    Bike share is a novel transportation mode that will provide another option for getting around the downtown area without getting into a vehicle. The system will start with 114 bikes at 15 stations. Most of the stations will be located downtown; two will be located at Boise State University. Bikes will be available 24 hours a day.
sers of Boise GreenBike can choose from a variety of membership options ranging from a “Pay As You Go” rate of $4 per hour to an annual membership for $70 that will provide an hour of free ride time every day of the year.
Boise GreenBike is a service of Valley Regional Transit. Membership is available now by visiting or by downloading the Social Bicycles app for iPhone or Android.

   Plans for the new Broadway Bridge include adding more travel lanes, wider sidewalks and bicycle lanes, and improving access to the Greenbelt. The project also includes rebuilding Broadway Avenue from University Drive to Front Street. The current bridge, which is more than 50 years old, is showing signs of wear and is too narrow for the high volume of cars, pedestrians and bicyclists that use it daily. 
   The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD)  has been working with the community to develop design plans for the project. ITD has been working with the community to develop design plans for the project. ITD will continue to involve and communicate with the community throughout the final design process and construction. 
Here is a link to more information about the project and comment on preliminary design plans.

The bus provides service to various locations in the city of Meridian between the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every Saturday. Two buses run the route in opposite directions to ensure quicker pickup times and shorter bus rides. Valley Regional Transit worked with the City of Meridian to develop the route. The City of Meridian is providing $60,000 in funding for the service. There is no cost to ride the bus.
