AVL Bike Share?

Strive Not to DriveComment

What do we think about #bikeshare in AVL. Asheville City Government is collecting your input (link below) and AVLtoday has a feature post on the concept and wants your thoughts. Strive’s stance: If we learn from similarly situated cities with bike share in use and offer a system fit for our needs (both locals and tourists), then yes we can integrate bike share into a system of transportation options. We should trust in an individual’s judgement to use the tool safely, while providing the info and infrastructure to support those trips. And ultimately, more bikes in circulation create an awareness among drivers, slow traffic, and encourages mode choice.
